THIS lens shows some of the dirt that can be
found in any crankcase after a few weeks of
driving road dust, carbon and fine particles of
metal. Such dirt circulates with the lubricating
oil through the engine, together with gasoline that
escapes past the pistons and dilutes the oil.
Have the dirty, diluted oil in your crankcase
drained out nou-before unnecessary wear begins.
