    ^lol, I'm asking about it a bit. https://www.amazon.com/TECHRON-266707338-Protection-Powersports-Fluid_Ounces/dp/B07K9FCLPZ?th=1 On the “last full tank” of a season, get in the habit of adding some of that to the lawn mower & snowblower?

    Small engine maintenance information

    Like, do you just use the file in and out of each link to keep edge pretty sharp? Sorry for the basic question, I've never sharpened one before... Well, keeping the blades in balance is new to me. Any words or product advice?

    Small engine maintenance information

    Thank you! Been an eye opener. Well, I do have a chainsaw and a 48'' deck on my stand on lawnmower. I know how to sharpen neither! Mind if I ask how you do it?

    Small engine maintenance information

    Well, I guess some details might help. I've got a Honda GX270 OHV in a tracked snowblower, a Kawasaki® FX691V 22 hp and two Hydro-Gear ZT-3400s in a stand on lawn mower. Anything specific?

    Small engine maintenance information

    Hi Guys, For the first time in my life I need to know how to maintain a "small engine" (lawn mower, snowblower, generator, etc.) I'm familiar with auto engine maintenance items. Is their anything different with small engines? I tend to keep things until it's not practical to source spare...

    2.7 ecoboost M1 5w-30 synthetic

    That’s the hearsay but it passes spec for my engine so I like the idea of my seals being maintained from day 1. It’s also thicker weight.

    2.7 ecoboost M1 5w-30 synthetic

    That’s why I want it, lol. Well, after I learned that there is a spec that the oil has to pass so as to not modify the seals too far. It’s all controlled apparently.

    2.7 ecoboost M1 5w-30 synthetic

    Thanks guys, I’m just doing one of these as a set it and forget it check. I’ll probably just stick with 7500 miles and M1 5w-30 full synthetic (of any flavor/variant) so long as it meets Fords spec. That’ll be good enough. Glad it turned out well! I like this 2.7 so far.

    2.7 ecoboost M1 5w-30 synthetic

    Hi Guys, For fun, here is used oil analysis from my 2.7 ecoboost which includes a small fraction towing at ~13k lbs GCW. Unfortunetly, I can't remember which variety of M1 5w-30 full synthetic that I used. I typically use high mileage extended performance, but this might have been regular or...
