Aaron, I've been playing with these toys for many years. I've never used a supplement, and never had a problem. I've tried different octanes, and 87 seems to run the best. Biggest thing is to keep your carb adjusted properly. A lean carb can cause burned valves and engine overheating. A rich carb will cause carbon deposits, which, if wedged under a valve, will also cause burned valves. If it is running properly you shouldn't have a problem. Rod H.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
