No, not a help question (finally!)...I had read in my FSM that the radiators came with some oil in them from the factory. Anyone know what kind? It makes some sense, better lube on the water pump and maybe even help prevent some corrision. I was thinking about putting some in, but I don't know what kind or what quantity? Anyone know?

The oil is/was a light machine oil that was basically to prevent oxidation of the metal parts prior to installation. I do not think it was meant to lube the water pump or any other moving parts.

Interested to read what others might say.

Hu Hu Hu, he said "lube"........ As Mac said, that's just a rust preventative measure for the raw metal found inside the new rads. If you are worried about corrosion, then keep up on routine maintenance.
My spare change,
Mike
