    2020 Toyota Sienna

    My first Japanese car since 1980. Initial impression is very nice, well appointed, quiet. Seriously, you cannot hear the engine at idle standing next to the car. But that's not why I bought it. I simply cannot lift my special needs daughter in and out of the Chrysler any more. She is a grown...

    Copper in UOA

    I've gotten interested in this topic lately. I've looked at many UOA, and noticed that some oils will show a higher concentration of copper than others. There may even be several UOA that show low copper, then a brand change will be made, and copper spikes. This may explain some of it. I have...

    Restrictor Ramblings

    I got this idea from a thread on an import board. The discussion was in regards to restricting oil to turbos.Might be old news to most of you, just sharing an idea. In my mind the restrictor should be on the output of the head, after the filter. YMMV, some folks restrict the input. I do not know...

    What the Heck/Pickup?

    With so many words being re-defined in todays world, this one really got me. When did a flippin' golf cart get to be called a pickup truck? And a half-ton at that? Shocking how the english language is being assaulted by the TBATV . <a...

    New Ford Hybrid

    Interesting concept. Lots of times patents are issued to protect IP, not because they will hit production. This looks viable though... <a href="https://www.foxnews.com/auto/all-wheel-drive-hybrid-v8-powerplant-revealed-in-ford-patent" target="_blank">Ford V8 Hybrid</a>

    Good deal on a bypass filter

    No affiliation, stumbled on <a href="https://www.ebay.com/itm/182858170915" target="_blank">this</a> while looking for a vintage MG100. Looks like a really good deal for a Racor clone. I doubt it's a real Racor at that price point... could be I suppose since not manufactured any more...

    Fram PB50

    Fram bypass filter for several tractors. Fits Baldwin OB1305 head, replacement for Baldwin B50. Caught them on sale at the local Farm and Home for 1.00 each, so one got sacrificed. Simply nothing special here. Thin can, standard media, simple button in output for restriction, leaf spring at top...
