i waited till my oil change so i didn't need to drain. although i will say i now run a bottle of zmax in my oil every change and it runs great. i also have zmax in my trans as well. you may look into it once you get your lifter issue taken care of.

I've seen the old late night commercials claiming that z max was liquid god in a bottle. They took a inline 300 ford motor and added z max to it. Then they drained the oil and took off the cover to the pushrods and started spraying water in it. The motor never locked up but I just can't believe that stuff is that good. If it was every one would use it. Just seems too expensive to use as directed. Now I'm no expert and if it works for you that's great.

Haha. I remember that... An excellent choice of an engine to use.
Those straight sixes were the damndest things, they would run a good long time with minimal maintenance. That engine was the "power plant of choice" for the UPS fleet for many years. As well as, too numerous to list, industrial applications.

One hell of an engine...

That engine would have stayed running had they submerged it in a pool of mud.

Even without the Z max...

Long enough to get the footage that they needed for their "infomercial" anyway.
Neat demonstration... On the durability of a Ford 4.9 l six.
These crazy additives have been on the market for years. A lot longer than I've been around.
Slick 50 was the "latest and greatest" for my generation. Used to be only available through "dealers". Not available in any stores. You had to buy it out of the trunk of some dudes car... Like a dope deal...

Wasn't buying it then, and, even though I've wised up quite a bit since my youth... Im still not buying it...
