    Oil breaking in a 454

    If the machine work was done right, just do a lot of variation on the go pedal, moly rings usually seat pretty quick. It never hurts to get it up to 3000 rpm, then let get off the gas and let it coast. Old school and it works, to seat the rings on those big pistons.

    Oil breaking in a 454

    A lot depends on the rings, how the cylinder was finish honed, and pistons, but I wouldn't run synthetic until the rings are seated.

    Looking for info to purchase 14 bolt 9.5 rear

    It should as long as it's obviously a 6 lug. I'd still measure center to center spring pad spacing before I go to be sure.

    Tires for...Stash?

    I just bought a set of RT43's for my Trax for the exact same reason. They were delivered today and are already in storage. It may be tire size dependent on the Generals but the last set was made in Ecuador, this set, a size larger than stock, was made in the USA.

    The lack of available public restrooms

    I travel for a living. Up to last year hotel lobby restrooms were always the best and safest place, but now many hotel restrooms are closed to the public. However, Mcdonald's are still always open. Walmart too.

    Sagging Chevy S10 ... options?

    Replace the factory leaf springs. Helper springs are designed to support a sagging load back to the original ride height, not raise sagging springs.

    A relic I inherited...

    I still do that today. I use "drip" oil for topping off and all my OPE oil changes.

    A relic I inherited...

    There was a big difference between the "professional" ones and the cheap ones too, especially when the cans went to fiber. A quart every 1000 miles was pretty normal use back then, a good thing too because you had to add the full quart of oil.
