Time to Clean the Crankcase on the Old Bus with a Norlite Cleaner:

Crank case and oil pan cleaning was one of the regular maintenance tasks that the motorist used to have to deal with often. It was not until the advent of modern full-flow oil filters and the use of detergent oils came about, along with the development modern piston rings that kept the by-products of combustion out of the crankcase, that this job became a thing of the past.

L.D. Taylor is seen here posing with a 1927 Packard, 4th Series Six Sedan, a Norlite Crankcase cleaning machine to his right and a can of Norlite motor oil on his left. The oil appears to have been be refined by a Vancouver, B.C. company from California crude oil that was shipped up the West Coast and marketed locally and this may have been a press photo to promote the brand.

I'm all for old skool motoring, but I ain't carrying one of those in the back of my rod.
