Re: Batt. Supercharger

There is a Patent Number on the ad. It’s too faint to read but maybe the book will show it. You can look up the patent and it will tell you how it works and what the components are.

Re: Mikes Oil Filter question

I agree with J Franklin and Brentwood Bob. I donít understand why you would check the oil right after you drive. The important thing to do is check the oil BEFORE you drive.

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.
