That sure doesn't look like a Perkins. There's no oil dripping from it, or what I like to call 'external lubrication'. And no Perkins Patina, aka rust...

..thats funny... and I questioned there recomendation with most people saying they didnt replace them untill they failed or there was sign that they were abot to fail. I think i can devise a system that will warm of impending failure. After i get done with this rental house, my sisters old house, I will see what i can come up with. The sheriff did the wwalk thr9ough today so i changed the locks....should sell the place but .2% interest in the bank makes the $1,000 per month on a property worth $200,000 look pretty attractive.
