GET AN EAGLE OILER.
I bought it 12 years ago. I really liked it but it was under powered. Over the years I have replaced the engine, suspension and most everything else. I turboed it and had a prepped engine built for the track. It is very fun to drive now, with my street tune it has 285HP and 275LBS torque, @ only 14 LB boost, on the dyno. It doesn't lack for power anymore. Oh, about economical, I get over 30 MPG still on the road. track mileage, not so much.
Yes I do. I removed the ball types, then carefully drilled and tapped the holes 1/8 pipe thread. I used heavy grease while drilling and tapping to trap and hold the chips, then carefully cleaned each hole before installing the zerk. I use the German oiler designed for Bridgeport with Vactra way oil and it works great. Jack
