I'm with you, Bill. When I bought my B the oil in it was black &
sticky. A year and several oil changes later after the rings let go
there was still goop and some metal in the oil cooler. I elected to
replace both cooler and hoses, junked the old one. I couldn't bear to
even give it away, as I didn't want it on my conscious if someone else
tried to use it and suffered FOD to their engine.
