Getting ready to start up my rebuilt 327 again (after a wiped cam lobe) and went to Chevy dealer to pick up some EOS. Said he had two types, one in a pint container and one in a quart container.

He said the one in the pint container was the best because it was thicker - like STP - and the quart container was thinned down.

Which should be used and how much? I was thinking of getting the pint version and putting 2 pints in putting in the oil and then priming engine before putting in distributor and firing it up.

Thanks,

Randy

Thumbs up

Just pour in one pint with 4 qts of oil. And no, its not thicker cause its in a smaller container, its the same consistency all around.

The qt size is a different brand than the General's EOS.

Good luck with the break-in. Keep the refreshments cold for later.

Thanks much Everett. The parts man said that this was the first three pints he had sold in a long time. He said that most of the old hot rodders used to pick it up all the time, but had slacked off coming in over the past years.

Now for a trip to Autozone to pick up an oil pump primer.

Noticed you live in VA Beach. I spent about a year at Dam Neck and about 5 years in Newport News while in the Navy. Love and miss your area, especially fishing in the Chesapeake for flounder, snapper and wearing myself out when the Blues were running.

Thanks again,

Randy

Mark, they have them in their tool program. I got one last time I primed the engine then took it back to them. I think it was $20.00 or so and then they credit you or give you cash back when you take it back to them.

I'll let you know the price and where I picked one up.
