Where can you mount a Flashlube setup in a EL, cant find anywhere for the bottle to go or a suitable spot on the manifold for the feed.

Why not just pour it in the fuel tank.

once in a blue moon I pour a tube in there just to lube the upper cylinder.

the pcv line with a t join is a perfect feed.

make up some brackets for it, you got plenty of room around the firwall and even ont he drivers shock tower.

I always thought you just poured a certain mix in with ur fuel when you filled up? Seems easier to me. Oh well.

You do, if the car is made to run on leaded petrol, EL's sure arn't.
Then you can also get flash lube stuff for LPG which obviously can't be poured into LPG tank, but again it's mainly from leaded vehicles that arn't made to run on LPG, as unleaded valves usually withstand LPG without issues.

Use some tape to tape it in a rubbish bin! I wouldnt bother with it but thats just my opinion. Save the money you would spend on it and rebuild the head on your car.

Good answer... Don't you just love the negative people who pop up with their "why" and "can't do" attitudes !!

head rebuild $400, DIY, gaskets head bolts and a shop reco your head.

flash lube $70~ setup and $10 bottle every few months. will delay head rebuild by a few hundred thousand k's.

which option would you choose?

i would only recomend you using flashlube if you do alot of k's or some seriously harsh driving.
on your run of the mill 90's falcon used to cart the kids around or do shopping, it isn't really needed.

msnman, Ive had it sitting around since I pulled it of a gas Clevealnd. I think I will go with your idea of the PCV line and might make a bracket so it sits infront of the airbox. The gas converter takes a bit of room on the drivers side shock tower.
