Note: If your Travco is like mine its exact build date is written on the removable steel plate that bolts between the rear bumper and the gas tank.\n\nMine says 4-16-71 do I need to run lead additive in a stock setup?

It wouldn't hurt. Hardened valve seats were not common until a couple years later.
