What kind of funny "items" or mark-ups have you seen on invoices? I'll start.
- Blinker fluid. (obviously)
- Muffler bearing.
- Exhaust pressure return hose.
- Crankshaft level sensor.
- Piston return springs.
- Can of compression.


0W20 in summer at Death Valley is as good as 25w70 in winter at Alaska. Both can be done, neither is good for the engine long term. Oil grade is chosen by CLIMATE and OPERATING CONDITIONS.

The can of compression is a very expensive product. The muffler bearings can be bought at a very low price.

Wait til you see the price on 5-gal pails of compression... Don't even get me started on the 55 gallon drums...

In my old days I once got an estimate that said “R&R JD Moulding” I was like “what are you talking about with that” and Mackie was like, you pay for that and we go buy a bottle of Jack Daniels....
