Mighty nice looking B you have there. Why do you have to send a oil sample off?

The oil analysis tells you if your engine/transmission/rears are making metal and how much and even what type, eg..bearing metal, gear metal, etc...alerts you to problems before they become expensive problems

The kick stand is for me-- I'm 5' 15" and still can't reach from the ground over that fender to the bottom of the lubrafiner to open the drain cock.

I will post a copy of the oil results when it back- Monday or Tuesday.

Ok.......now you have my attention. Is it an oil company that the sample goes out to or some other company?

There are a bunch of independent testing labs out there. I have used a couple of different ones over the years. I am currently using Blackstone. Cost is $25 plus postage, they supply the kits, cost about $5 for priority mail. There are several with affiliations with the oil companies.

Have used it for years in the vehicles that use the full synthectic oils- I nearly double the mileage on the oil change interval with the tests.
