{Collins} Re: Needed Cleaning Suggestions

I omitted the source of the C-43..  I got my 1 gallon bottle / jug in
Dallas, but do not remember the distributor name, lets do a google search
and reconvene this availability issue. I just did check Google  and seldom
have I seen only 3 references.. none of which were even close.. might be
that we need to talk with Butch  K0BS .. he will no doubt remember..
