I have a GQ, and mine is located on the rear of the right guard, on a slight angle......
theres not much room under the bonnet of these...

It doesn't matter if the Moreys oil reservoir bottle isn't exactly vertical - just as long as the pickup tube reaches to the bottom. The adjustable regulator needs to be mounted vertical though for propper operation.

after having a good look i ended up putting it on the second battery frame ,i put the regulator on the fire wall and only just had enough tube for the pickup,its a very snugh fit with the a/c hoses ,power steering pump and battery cables , but it seems to be working okay .the ucl is coming thru and i set it at about 15 drops per min for starters.
thank you for the reply's.

Is there any point in using the stuff? Know a guy with 400000km's on gas in his GQ no upper cylinder lub. Know 400000 is true because he had a hole in his fuel tank and could not be bothered getting it fixed.

mainly using it to stop valves running to dry because of lack of lubrication from gas , mine has a miss at idle under load on gas but not on petrol,since installing this yesterday the miss is not there. also after working for a toyota dealer and seeing what crap materials they use in the valve guides (supposed to be hardened to run on unleaded) any help for the guides is a big plus,also help stops detination maybe not so much on vechiles designed to run on unleaded.brother inlaw tried running his 351 c on unleaded with head shims to lower compression , but still had problems untill he put the UCL kit on ,no more detination or run on, smoother idle .

I considered putting one on my GQ. Wasnt having any problems but thought might be cheap insurance. So when i took the car in to have the 10 year gas tank test i asked the guys in the workshop if it was worth fitting. Was told to save my money, not worth it.
I cant remember the name of the place offhand but all they did was gas conversions and gas tank testing. They also sold and installed upper cylinder lubricant kits. I figured if they didnt recommend them i would save the dollars and spend it on something else
