My stepfather told me that adding tranny fluid (couple of oz. to a tank of gas) to my gas would help lube the valve gides (like lead substitute). Is this true?

No explanation with that. He was a really good mechanic.

valve guide lube

I would think that it would lube the intake valves but not the exhaust becuse it would be burnt up by the time it got there unless you use so much you turn it into a 2 stroker.....lol The exhaust is where you really need the lube anyway.

That makes sense. LOL about the two stroke. I will need to check on them any way. I will let you know what I find.

Thanks
