Rapiti, if you decide to go this route, please keep us posted with a new thread specific to Evans (for easy searching).
Arch, I ordered a gallon each of the Evans coolant and prep mix. Both of our cars have something-glycol coolant, not sure if its polypropylene glycol like the Evans stuff (VW Passat & Yukon XL.) I'd be surprised if yours doesn't have someting similar. You need the Sunoco 113 (or whatever that high octane stuff is rated!)

I need to sort out my idjut light problem before I dump this stuff in, but I'll keep you posted.

One more for Arch: In your experience with Houston dealers, are LC4 parts order-in, or does Wild West, for example, maintain a parts inventory? TJs has some stuff, but they're not local. I need a clutch cover gasket before this roller bearing swap.
