unexpected improvement! I'm pumpee!

Hey guys. I just had to share my good news. I have always used sea foam in my fuel and have had good results from doing so. But I was never sure if I could use it as an oil additive because of the wet clutch. So I called sea foam today and talked to Jim and asked him about it. He answered an unequivocal yes! So I put in 2.5 ounces as directed hoping to loosen up any sludge that might be in there because I'll be doing an oil change soon. Well imagine my surprise to feel like I'd just put a new clutch in it! I mean the difference is just amazing! It used to slip a little when you're taking off and then from each gear unless the revs were way up. It still does some but it's VERY little by comparison. I'm just amazed at the difference. Thought I'd share that with you guys. Maybe you already knew about how good it does in your oil?
I'm curious after I've had it in there for a couple days to see if I find any other improvements. I'll be sure to post about it if I do. I decided to make a new post because I want people to find out about it if they don't already.
Hope everyone is well! See ya next time!

I thought those clutches were obsolete, but I looked and everything is still available!

They were used up thru 2001 on various models. Even the cone shaped springs are for sale. The case, gears and shafts are the only parts that you can't buy. Servicing the clutch packs is not difficult either! And you got the secret juice already... LOL
Here is another one I was shown last week. The prices look slightly better at quick glance but I know nothing about the company.
