Re: TC with the rebuild?

definitely add a TC to the rebuild.

You don't want the stocker coming apart and wrecking the goodies you are putting in there.

take care~

Actually it is more like dumping the old oil from the filter back into the crankcase.

You only need two tools: WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
