Lead was originally added to gasoline as an upper cylinder lubricant. It lubes the valves and seats. If you rebuild the motor, you could use hardened seats and valves, and unleaded fuel.
But if your old tractor runs good, a simple lead substitute added to the gas is a perfectly reasonable solution. And, if you are like me, your tractor is under cover, but it sits outside. So with every temperature change, the humidity in the air collects in the fuel tank, in the form of water.
Now you need a moisture management protocol. Does this mean that you need to buy a bunch of additives? No! There is a product that Iíve been using for the last 10 years. It is a lead substitute, a moisture management package, and an octane booster!! It works so well that I became a distributor for the manufacturer.
It is called Maxi-Mizer. Itís made in this country, originally for the space shuttle program. The catalyst in it makes the fuel burn more completely and results in better fuel endurance. It burns the fuel in the motor, that would normally exit as unburnt hydrocarbons.
You could buy a lot of additives and still not get all the benefits of this one product.
When used with Maxi-Mizer MBL, the extreme pressure motor oil additive which reduces friction, the benefits are compounded. The extreme pressure lube can be added to the transmission, rear axle, and hydraulic system with similiar benefits.
These products are called the performance set, and have been used by the racing profession for years. Maxi-Mizer comes in gas and diesel formulas. For $22.00, one 16 oz. bottle treats 320 gallons of gasoline, and with all of its qualities, the choice of which additive to use is clear.
These products can be purchased from me, and your Farm Tax Exemptions are welcome. For more information and to purchase these products, please call Mike Schordine at (516) 924-2875; or e-mail at Octoflick@aol.com. You can also write to:
