    VW TDI 505.01 specific oil questions.

    How well would you expect the Motul 505.01 Spec oil to hold up to the Castrol Synthetic (and I use that term loosely) that is 505.01? Just wondering if I'll have to shorten my change interval at all. I do see some lengthy runs on Motul oils, but don't know how this stuff will work out. Any input...

    VW TDI 505.01 specific oil questions.

    The Motul dealer is Bobby Archer Motorsports located in Texas. Email is [email protected] and website is bobbyarchermotorsports.com phone # 817-877-1772. I have no affiliation with them. They give 10% discount on case orders. This is a great alternative to the Castrol option. I bought enough...

    VW TDI 505.01 specific oil questions.

    Thanks, for your good post AndyH and FowVay. Motul is also brewing the 505.01 along with Castrol. Much better oil so I did some searching. Came up with a business in Tx that sells Motul (Archer Motorsports, I think the name may be wrong.) I'll post with business name and toll free phone #...

    VW TDI 505.01 specific oil questions.

    I don't want to buy the Castrol 505.01 from my dealer for my '04 VW TDI after seeing the VOA on it. Thought the Motul 505.01 would be better. Does anyone know where to buy this oil at a decent price either in auto parts chains or by mail order? I wonder how Amsoil is doing with the possibility...

    Schaeffers #705 Supreme 20w-50 vs Amsoil 20w-50 cycle oil vs Mobil 1 15w-50?

    After reading one of Bob's other posts, I wonder if 15w40 Schaeffers Supreme 7000 would be better than Schaeffers 20w50 Racing oil due to the more robust additive package. Clutch slippage isn't an issue as my BMW has tranny separate from crankcase. The 15w40 would take care of the majority of...

    Schaeffers #705 Supreme 20w-50 vs Amsoil 20w-50 cycle oil vs Mobil 1 15w-50?

    I don't think any filter would have a problem performing the 6k service interval. Just want and extended drain capable oil to match up with it. Do you have empirical evidence that says otherwise? I'm always interested in learning more on the subject. Thanks, Gary. <img border="0"...

    Schaeffers #705 Supreme 20w-50 vs Amsoil 20w-50 cycle oil vs Mobil 1 15w-50?

    Which offers the best value and protection for my 2 BMW's (2000 BMW R1100RT & 1978 BMW R100S)? Would the Schaeffers 20w-50 Supreme Racing oil #705 (blend) hold up as well as the Amsoil 20w-50 synth cycle oil for moderate length drains 4-6k. Amsoil lists theirs around $6.55/qt and Shaeffers...

    Neutra or Soy neutra or Valve sheild (Schaeffers#142) in a motorcycle

    I have recently purchased a 1978 BMW R100S that was to run on leaded fuel. The previous owner used a lead replacement. I have Neutra 131 already at home but wonder if I should use 131C Soy Neutra or the 142 Valve sheild. I also should tell you the BMW is a bit higher compression and the benifit...

    NUETRA-can you use it in auto trannys?

    What would be the dosage and run duration and are the results comparable with auto rx? I have a Honda civic '99 w/slightly rough shifting trans that needs a little cleaning before I drain it. Thanks, Gary.

    Sticking valves, need quick fix. What to use?

    I have a buddy who has a 91 Toyo 4runner w/166k on it. It has sticking valves and he's going to sell it in the near future and wants a quick fix. What has worked well for you in the past? Would tranny fluid be an option in the oil or is there something better. Don't have time for an Auto-RX...

    Ran tiller with NO OIL? Any suggestions?

    I came to work and was telling a buddy I'd just switched my Troybilt tiller over to Schaeffer oil and he said "I ran mine without oil and seized it up today." Says its an Airens 5HP about 10 yrs old and he'd drained oil this am, got sidetracked and did something else and then started it up and...

    Havoline opinions?

    Dont know much about the oil other than most here think it's a great oil especially for the price you paid. I live in Republic, MO and am still wishing I'd beat your oil hoarding tail to Target. <img border="0" alt="[Dual]" title="" src="/forums/graemlins/itschy.gif" /> I did pick up 30 qts...

    Auto RX in Civic & Ford F150 motor/tranny ???

    I have a 99 Civic 69K auto tran & F159 4.6L V8 w/100K auto tran. Both vehicles have been driven easy overall and about 60/40 hwy/city mileage. The Honda doesn't want to shift into OD as soon as it did at a younger age. This is when cold but also notice shifting in general is not as good as it...

    Which Schaeffer grease to use?

    Bob, I was looking at the manual of my commercial mower and it recommends lithium grease. I know you probably already know the 221 is fine but I thought I'd see if I should use lithium or 221. The lithium is only for the blade spindle bearings and they recommend plain old chassis grease...

    high flow non oiled air filter's

    I saw a previous post here (i think) that stated Baldwin paper filters flow at 720-750 cfm compared to 1000 for k&n and around 400 for wix paper. Baldwins are available from some trucking parts suppliers for many autos/trucks.

    Which Schaeffer grease to use?

    Bob, is the 221 #2 the black grease my rep spoke of? He did say it was really tacky so I think it might not be what you recommended for my high speed bearings on the mower spindles. What does the #2 in 221 #2 stand for? Does the 221 come in a cartridge for grease guns? Thanks for your help...

    Push mower on hill, am I stuck with Lawn Boy?

    Ron, you won't be sorry. Wish you could have bought one of the 2 stroke commercial models like mine (maybe you did). It is awesome! Has all kinds of power and the self drive sys is eons better than my '79 model. I figure at 43 yrs old it will be the last one I buy. I like the looks of the Toro...

    Push mower on hill, am I stuck with Lawn Boy?

    S2000 driver, I have to agree with Ron Jeremy on the LawnBoy. I got laid off from my job shortly after high school and was living on my own. I bought an LB self propelled mower in 1979 and I started mowing lawns, 10-12/week + my own. I did that for 4 years and then did it again for 1 year around...
