    Schaeffer’s Supreme 9000 5W-30, 7,182 miles, 2013 Ford F-150 5.0

    Hi all, here’s the UOA from the third run of Schaeffer’s Supreme 9000 in my F-150 5.0 V8 with 125k miles. So far I’ve been really impressed with the results that Schaeffer’s has been returning, but at the same time I’ve been thinking of ordering some Schaeffer’s Euro 5W-30 Full SAPs to try 😀...

    Old oil find COOP Motor Oil

    Hi all, while searching for some parts in an old warehouse/shop today I found a quart of CO-OP branded engine oil. It was rated API SF and SAE 10W. There was also an old oil spout sitting right next to it, which I forgot take pictures of. As a side note, the COOP brand was Farmland Grain (a...

    Schaeffer’s Supreme 9000, 5W-30, 7,292 miles, 2013 F-150 5.0

    Hi all, here’s the latest UOA on my F-150 5.0L V8. 7.3k miles and 4 months on this OCI. The analysis came back looking good minus a touch of fuel dilution, which could have been because I only drove the truck 2-3 miles to warm it up before the oil change. This is the new API SP formula, and the...

    John Deere AM125424c Filter Cut Open

    As the title says here’s a John Deere filter cut open with unknown hours and time on it. This came off of a Kohler CH20 on a Miller welder with 1238 hours on it. Judging by how low the oil was (barely touched the dipstick) I’d say it’s been on there for a long time. There was a considerable...

    Hi all, here’s the latest UOA from my dad’s Lincoln Mark LT (F-150). He ran this with a Napa Gold filter. Overall, it looks like Napa/Valvoline oil has a pretty decent add pack to it.

    Schaeffer’s 9000 5W-30, 6.9k Miles, 2013 F-150

    Hi all, here’s the latest oil run from my 2013 F-150 5.0. A little background, from 30k-104k miles this engine saw nothing except P.P. 5W-20. I got a wild hair and decided to go full BITOG and change things up, both brand and grade! This oil was in service for just under 4 months and saw...

    Kohler Command Pro Oil Choices

    Hi all, I purchased a new Cub Cadet XT3 this year with a 22.5hp Kohler Command Pro and was curious what everyone’s thoughts are on what I should run for my next oil change? The dealer gave me 2 quarts of Kohler syn blend 10W-40 and a filter when I purchased it, which I used at 25 hrs. I...

    Quaker State Defy 5W20, 6,790 miles, 04 F-150

    Hi all, here's the latest Blackstone report for my 2004 F-150. The oil had 6,790 miles and 2 months 10 days on it. I changed out the old oil and filter with the same combo, more QS Defy and a K&N oil filter left over from the Pennzoil special's a while back. I also changed out the air filter at...

    97 Corolla Valvetrain Pics

    Hi all, here's some pictures I snapped yesterday as my dad and I changed the valve cover gasket on my step-sister's 1997 Toyota Corolla 1.6L engine. It's been leaking and burning oil since she bought it so we changed the VC gasket and PCV valve to help slow it down a bit. It's heavily varnished...

    Oil on Spark Plug (pic heavy)

    Hi all, I was hoping to get folk's thoughts on whether these plugs look acceptable for 55k of use, and more specifically about what would cause oil to get onto the plug from the #5 cylinder. These plugs came out of a 5.4 3V Ford with 164k miles. Not all of the plugs are pictured, as one had...

    Decoy Gloves for Duck Hunting

    Hi all, any duck or waterfowl hunters out there I'd appreciate any opinions on a good set of decoy gloves for duck hunting. I already had bought a pair of Flambeau elbow length decoy gloves from Walmart for $25.00 and the first time I used them one glove leaked water between a couple of the...

    Mac Tools

    Hey all, was wondering if anybody has any experience with Mac's XR8K 8", 3/8" drive ratchet and their VR11K 11", 1/2" drive ratchet. I have never used any Mac tools but do have a couple of Snap On ratchets and then almost everything else Craftsman and really like both brands but due to Snap On...

    Amsoil ASL 5W-30 7200 miles 04 F150 5.4

    Here is the latest UOA on my 2004 Ford F150. I topped the oil off at 5000 miles with a quart of the new Amsoil S.S. 5W-30 as I could not find any ASL left at the stores, and a Bosch Distance Plus oil filter was used for the entire oci. The oil was changed with Pennzoil Ultra 5W-30 and a...

    Pennzoil Platinum 0W-20 at Walmart

    Just curious if anybody has bought and is running P.P. 0W-20 now that Walmart is carrying it. I hadn't seen mention of it on here, and all of the Wally World's around home and here at school have had it for at least the past few weeks but only in 5 quart jugs. Sorry if this is a repost. <img...

    Here is my latest UOA on my 2004 Ford F-150 5.4L 3V. This run had a lot of short trips and city driving with some interstate driving of 150 miles each way when I drive home from school every few weeks. Side note, the oil was in use for 3 months, and a motorcraft fl-820s oil filter was used. So...
