                      Almost, when planes land and the engines are thrown into reverse to slow the speed down, it creates a large amount of carbon to build up on the reverser plates. My uncle engineered a fluid that keeps those plates from being cleaned of that carbon build up as often. I was the contractor that got it into the US Air Force use on KC-135s as a start, went further to other models, I got it into the supply system for the US Navy use and into the Delta Airlines. It was already in use in the TWA system when I started.

                      Sounded like something kin to the legendary "50 feet of Flightline" that the newbys were always sent to the tool crib for.

                      Did the fluid also help lubricate the muffler bearings??

                            A shop can be attached to the house, or a more full scale operation like some of our members have. The shop can often times be a more enjoyable place if you have a well behaved shop dog who knows his way around.
                            Requirements—

                            1. Don’t lick the antifreeze
                            2. Don’t walk through oil spots
                            3. Ass sniffing the visitors is bad. Especially the female visitors.

                            I would like to give a big shout out to the body repair guys out there !!! I spent the day working on fenders, splash shields, and misc. parts at a friends repair shop. I sanded 8 hours yesterday and this morning I'm so glad he doesn't work the weekends My arms will never be the same and my back needs a vacation. So how you guys, in this field, do it day in and day out is beyond my understanding....

                            Is there a way to adjust camber? Do you have to remove the axle to do it? Thanks, David

                            Not able to get around well keeps me from doing much A related anymore, but I did make it out to the shop today to make sure the A’s were still there. Good news, they were! Snapped a photo and was wondering who else would share some home shop/garage pics
