I order Oil and Vinegar as dressing on my salads, but usually just use the Vinegar

Oh, Never mind.

No, I don't remember the moly content.

I'm getting it amazon $41.00 for 5 liters

Don't know what the previous owner had in the motor, been using it in my Dyna for a couple years. Truck too


I just bought some bel-ray ATF for the primary, haven't changed it yet.
