    Ford 351W oil filter best value

    With such a short OCI, I'd stick to a orange can PH8A. Or leave the Ultra in place for a few OCI's. Stay away from [censored] Motocrafts! The 820s is one of the most notorious P/N's for tearing media.

    Motorcraft FL820S cut open 2k miles

    Still making junk filters, no surprise! It's been 5 years now, you'd think quality control would have stepped up by now at MannHummel! But clearly, they just don't care. I'll never run a M+H product on anything I own ever because of how negligent the company has been towards quality control and...

    SHELLL motor oils : Dropped ?

    Because QS and Pennzoil sell better. I'd go for those if it were me, slightly better add packs too.

    '08 Corolla noticable varnish after Castrol GTX

    Varnish isn't anything to worry about it, but keep an eye on it. If it turns to sludge then you got issues to address!

    Unused oil filters go bad?

    No they don't go bad, as long as they don't rust or get a bunch of junk in them, can be stored for years and used anytime.

    Hondas without oil filters

    One thing that sold me on the TTR230, it has a cartridge filter that's a snap to change. No worries here! Both bikes are essentially the same though otherwise. Can go years with routine maintenance.

    Oil for 1968 Ford 390FE V8 engine?

    Have a old '67 F250 HighBoy that has a 390 out of a 1968 vehicle. Far as I know it's stock, and runs on a 2 barrell carburetor so it's not making gobs of power. I've been running 15W-40 Rotella in it, but as I understand it, the zinc levels have dropped substantially in the new formula so should...

    What's your item that you hoard?

    Gold and silver, but there's no such thing as "too much" for me when it comes to those items!

    Stranded at home!

    My buddy who lives in Montana with me, went there with his fiance to visit her family over the holidays. Sent me a video this morning from Golden Hills with about a foot of snow on the ground. I jokingly told him he brought some Montana with him! Lol

    What’s the most expensive car new that you bought used?

    Probably my Buick, I think it was around $48k new and I got it for $3500 in April with 125k miles.

    Any 0w-30 oil users?

    Been running M1 AFE in my Tacoma for 2 years now I think? Nothing to report, and got a great UOA on it with 10k awhile ago, said I could take it to 12k if I wanted. Not bad for vanilla M1!

    Nice, you have the same oil drain pan as I do!
