Re: [DML] Re: Oil Changes



Hi Gary:

Anything to make life easier would be greater.  Basically, my current  
method to avoid the oil onto the chassis.... I just hang a small  
plastic bag on the valve's opening, which will deflect the oil.  Then  
the bag can also be disposed along with the oil.  Not completely of  
an "wipe free" operation, but it does minimize the mess....

On another matter, I am still in the search of an easier and faster  
solution or method for replacing the distributor's cap, rotor and  
wires?  That would really be helpful  :-)
