    20hp Kohler in a Terramite backhoe.

    I have an older Terramite T5C backhoe with a Kohler 20hp twin. I have been using it quite a bit lately and in the hot weather I was wondering if it might be a good idea to run synthetic in it? I run the engine a full throttle most of the time as its a bit underpowered. Anyone have any thoughts...

    AC Delco stopped making the PF59?

    I have been unable to find PF59 filters anywhere, the local parts store took the slot they used to be in away completely. Many people from my Avalanche board are saying the same thing. Anyone have any info on this situation? Apparently they are pushing the PF44 in its place, are their specs...

    Purolator One Oil Filter

    I was looking at the P-1's at pep boys the other day and they seem absolutely cheap. Very light, thin walled cans and a horible spray can type blue metallic finish that looks like it was done in a backyard. I took one look and put it back on the shelf, first impression was horrible..

    Mobil clean 5000, any thoughts

    The clean 5000 is supposed to have a higher (16%) detergent and cleaner additive. I was hoping it would help with the CSK in my Avalanche's 5.3.

    New B&S engine breake-in

    I have the same 18.5 B&S engine and just did the first oil change after the initial 5 hours. The oil was very very clean. I used a castrol syntec 10-30 synthetic (they were out of mobil 1). I plan on changing it again in another 5-10 hours and use Mobil 1 10-30. Thanks for the oil filter...

    BOBISTHEOILGUY FILTER TESTS

    I didnt see this mentioned (I admit I didnt read all 10 pages) but pressure drop across a filter is not a good way to determine flow or filtering ability. To measure flow, a flow meter or method of measuring the output is needed, to measure filtering ability, a particulate test is needed...
