    Maybe he should have left it in there, just might have fixed that mysterious leak a la Barrs.

We were on a country road about 5 miles from my grandmother's house and at least a mile from the nearest house when the temp gauge went to the red. We pulled over to the side of the road and the radiator was steaming. He always carried an extra can or two of pre-mixed antifreeze for these occasions, and also always had a few empties. He goes to the back of the truck, grabs one and shakes it to make sure it's full. He opens the radiator and starts pouring what at first appears to be anti-freeze based on color. Then the smell hit us both just as a wad of wet toilet paper poured out of the bottle into the radiator followed by a brown lump.... My uncle had emptied the "chamber pot" at his deer blind into one of the empty antifreeze cans and forgot to throw it in the trash.

    His response when he realized what he'd just done: "Well.... crap."

    Funny thing was he grabbed a piece of fence wire off the back of the truck and fished the paper out of the radiator, along with the other, ahem, crap , and finished filling the radiator up with another bottle of anti-freeze and we drove on back to my grandmother's. He eventually got that coolant leak fixed, and had that truck for another 12 years at least.

    Just goes to show that older equipment was much more tolerant of crap !

    Broker, your hand was on the can, your eyes were looking at the oil color. If the oil did not look right, why did you not stop. I think you goofed big time.

    Soundguy was right back on page 13, we'll never know the outcome.

    BTB's last post was 6/1/09, and the last he logged in was 7/4/09.

    But I think we all know what the 'green' was(even without an analysis), and since he admitted having at least a dozen "empty" cans..............
