Beware ZDDP Maxx

A 2-pack of ZDDP Maxx arrived this AM from Amazon. I opened it and becaiuse it is kind of lumpy I upended the bottle in the valve cover and went about my business of dent repair. Later, I pulled the bottle and just as I was putting the breather on I spied something funny in the valve train... check out the pic. For some reason unknowable to humankind the ZDDP MAXX bottle designer put a plastic plug under the cap, half of which comes off upon opening, the other half, upon pouring.

Actually, I HOPE that is the case. Since I can't find the other half, I can't be sure that it is not floating inside my valve cover. Idiots!

Hahahahaha, I'd say that right about now 'idiot' is an objective term that we all fall into at times...
