Got the Drip?
Over the past 5 years or so I've bought a 1981 Wheelhorse garden tractor, 1980 Ford 1500 tractor, 1966 Massey 135 tractor, 1965 Mustang and a 1953 International R112 pickup. I've learned to deal with the drips and burning oil. Wheelhorse leaks a little oil. Massey burns it. Mustang has a drip from the 4 speed where the linkage connects and valve seals burn oil. IH pickup burns oil out the cylinders, rear main leak and the threads on the rear end bolt slow drip. Oh, and my 2007 Silverado has a rear main drip too. While I'm at it my 2012 Cruze leaks oil somewhere around the turbo line.
I've learned over the last few years to enjoy using and driving the stuff and monitor the fluid levels. If any of them were severe enough I would obviously fix them. So how many of you don't get too concerned about a few drops here and there?
