Another empirical Lucas product testimony

Have had problems with rack leak since I bought the car... buying off-shelf
, convenience store and parts-store additives helped a little.

Finally glommed on to using Lucas PS additive, as Trans Fix worked well in
my trans...

Leaking slowed and stopped... at least no drips on ground.

That's just my opinion, of course.

Back in the 60's I had a car with lots of Lucas parts. MG I think.
It often slowed and stopped. Some things never change. :)

I'm a huge fan of the Lucas Red 'N Tacky #2 grease - that stuff is
beyond cool. Travels, & sticks, to everything it's supposed to.

Re: Another empirical Lucas product testimony

Just to add a little balance to the equation..... seal swellers are good for
emergency roadside repairs..... however, we must remember that these
chemicals not only swell and soften worn seals, they also perform this
service on perfectly good seals in the same system.

Like radiator stop leak, seal swellers should be considered a temporary
"fix" and do not usually signal the end of an on going concern....
