    Question: kohler cv15s oil question

    Okay I didn't think of that. I did pack clean rags in the valve cavity before sanding then swabed with paint thinner then dried the whole thing. But I will change the oil before I use it again. Good advice.

    Question: kohler cv15s oil question

    Okay so 8 weeks ago I change the oil with 5w 30 dino. I also installed a new carb because it was surging up and down (it solved that problem). At the time I noticed the valve cover was leaking and had my engine caked with oil and mud. Which leads me to believe that it was leaking for...

    Duramax 10000 watt generator oil grade

    Coldest temps here are 5 to 30 probably most of the worst is around 15. It is electric start. Btw I have never used the pull cord to start. Maybe I'll leave it in there then on a cold day when it's not a power outage I'll start it. If it's a problem I'll switch to a lighter grade. Thanks y all.

    Pep Boys Definity all season with 75000 mi on them

    Okay so almost 4 yrs ago I put 4 new pep boys tires on my BMW X5. At 104000 miles. I turned 180000 mile today and those tires passed state inspection and have about 10000 miles left. I rotate every 7000 miles and keep tire pressure at specs. Is this normal. All 4 tires were under $500 with road...

    A 9 mm

    I guess you could return it if you don't like it. I don't know anything about guns. I am interested and I am thinking of getting my first handgun. I was told that good guns start at around $650 to $1000 for a home security handgun. But what do I know?

    100,000 Miles Spark Plug

    Sometimes inquiring minds have to know! How about a brake job for say $200 per axle. And in 20000 miles how many time do those things safely stop 3 to 4 thousand lbs. For fractions of pennies per stop. My head is starting to hurt.

    recommend a dino oil for Canadian winter

    Since moving to a warmer climate is not practical. Spend the extra 4 or 5 Canadian Dollars for 0 30 synthetic. Drive an extra 9000 US miles; you'll be ahead on your purchase and will be able to sleep better. -20 is dang cold for regular starts.

    Duramax 10000 watt generator oil grade

    I changed the oil in the 16 hp engine today. The manual calls for 10 - 30. I had a a brain snap and grabbed a bottle of 10 - 40 Castrol conventional. Poured it in when I'm cleaning up I look at the label and realize it was wrong. Does it matter? Will it be hard starting in the cold...

    Okay, so for now this will be my last post until after I try my idea. I have given up on sound deadening for now. I'm spending too much money and too much time on this project (I'm exhausted). So I was going to make a makeshift frame and tent out of pvc, tarp and stakes for weather protection...
