Re: oil pressure question

I would go ahead and add the sump and the extra quart or 2 of oil.

Also, you may want to ask this question over on: www.glamisdunes.com forums.

Much more activity over there and will get plenty of other opinions and advice.

Re: Obsessed Contact info

Steve and Cathy divorced several years ago. Steve moved to New York state after having his buggy made street legal. I always hate to see things like that happen. :(

Cathy was out at Gecko last Saturday helping with the removal of the Gecko area stakes.
