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...
