    Sealant for Oil Pan RTV or Anerobic

    Got the project completed using the permatex UltraBlack as I already had some. Been two weeks, so far so good, no leaks! The hardest thing was squeezing it out of the tube to a 3mm bead, the stuff is quite thick to push through such a small opening. A caulk gun type application would be better...

    Trans filter 6L80

    I purchased a 6L80 Baldwin filter from RA as that is all they had, came with a rubber pan gasket so that was a bonus.

    So in order for any test to be valid it has to follow an ASTM standard and Millions of dollars worth of lab equipment. Got it! 😂

    Project Farm - Tests Pennzoil Motor Oil

    No one is saying he is competing with SAE j300 or manufacturer tests,(which by the way change over time as well, LSPI, chain elongation, etc..) His tests are meant to compare products using his own set of criteria using his own quipment, he subjects all products to the same conditions and same...

    Project Farm - Tests Pennzoil Motor Oil

    While I can agree PF tests are not ASTM tests, nor do the mimic any tests for licenses and specifications. PF has his own set of criteria and tests that he runs through, an he follows these same procedures consistently for all the oil he "tests" so the results are based on how they perform...

    A little annoyed with Wix today

    I have seen several wix filter problems lately (including something as simple as no sticker) I am sure these problems have always been there as with any manufacturing. I think the difference, in the past they did a better Job with Quality Control and the "bad products" were removed at the...

    HPL cleaning 2013 Hyundai Elantra - cut filter element

    Big change since 300 mile mark. Closing in on the 600 Mile mark cleaning is starting to happen, I would say 40-50% of the varnish has been removed, and I am starting to see bare metal, granted this is limited view through the oil cap. Oil has also turned color and starting to look like...

    How is your Chevy EcoTec3 v6 still holding up?

    I mentioned in a separate thread that I am working on one of these. It does have a 6l80 that seems to still shift well, any suggested band aids to extend the life? What are the signs of and Oil Pump Flow/volume solenoid going bad? While I was replacing the broken tensioner, I went ahead and...

    HDEOs not suitable for high RPM?

    On a Kawasaki FR730/OPE I definitely see Foaming using delvac 1300 and that is only 3600RPM. Have notice the same on an outboard with Rotella 0-40W. Is it harmful 🤷‍♂️

    High Performance Lubricants Engine Cleaner

    I saw a post where Dave form HPL said a lower concentration for a longer interval is a fair tradeoff. I mentioned that a while back that I will be adding a small amount per OCI to boost the oil cleaning properties. Since the recommendation is (1:5) ratio for 2K miles for heavy cleaning...

    Is the HPL EC safe for RTV type gaskets? Any limitations to using the product on vehicles sealed with some sort of gasket maker?

    Sealant for Oil Pan RTV or Anerobic

    I know different post but somewhat related, this engine has a thick layer of varnish, It was fleet vehicle that followed the OLM and dealer only oil changes (dexos I assume), The owner was asking how to clean all that varnish up? I was going to suggest HPL Ec , will the RTV hold up against HPL EC?

    Sealant for Oil Pan RTV or Anerobic

    I just saw a tech tip video from permatex and they claim the "synthetic" permatex is to be used in applications with synthetic oils. Is this more marketing?

    Sealant for Oil Pan RTV or Anerobic

    Thanks for all the suggestions! The OEM stuff I scraped of was gray and still very pliable. Did not stick well, It was easy to scrape it off. Larger chunks would just come off using a fingernail.

    Sealant for Oil Pan RTV or Anerobic

    I am no rush to get it back into service just wanted something that won't leak, The factory applied sealant was as leaking front and back. Just wanted something that seals well and lasts.
