    With COPD I now don't enjoy anything that smells. Too, very few aromas.

    Could I chip in with a question. What is wrong with Al Cass, I rather like it, so does my DEG, having said that those valves would probably like Castrol GTX

    Lots of us have used Al Cass at one time or another, Andy, with one horn or another. If it is working well for you, it is perfect! Don't know about Castrol GTX, though...

    Castrol GTX 20-W50 will stop any leaks you may have! My first car ('54 Oldsmobile Super 88) leaked badly. Mechanic recommended the Castrol and it rarely leaked afterwards. Al Cass is what I grew up using. Nothing wrong with it and it's cheap and plentiful. Teacher gave me some Hetmans #2 and it was a little faster and lasted a bit longer before "hangups" occurred.

    My car's valves love Castrol GTX so maybe I'll give it a shot.

    Try #1 OR #2 and see which works best.
