    Green Grease compatibility

    Thanks! I read that data sheet a couple of times and totally missed that line 🤪

    Green Grease compatibility

    Does anyone know what the base of Green Grease is? The website is horrible. I found this Data Sheet in a search and it says 'Mixed Complex' but I'm not sure what that is. I used this stuff in a lawn mower spindle when I didn't have anything else and am now looking for something compatible, not...

    About GL4 and GL5 gear oil

    Thanks for the help. I checked a repair manual that has a tear down of the transfer case. It doesn't say whether the sycro is steel or brass but does mention a bronze plug inside. But I guess that's considered a red metal. Confusing the matter further it simply recommends a 90W gear oil without...

    About GL4 and GL5 gear oil

    I think it's the original fill but can't be 100% certain, it only has around 65k miles. I can't quite tell if the leak is coming from a seal or gasket, that why I want to top it off and monitor it. So it has nothing to do with metal corrosion, in that case any GL5 would be suitable?

    About GL4 and GL5 gear oil

    I've been doing maintenance work on my '02 Kia recently and noticed a leak in the transfer case. I can't tell yet if it's a seal or is just seeping from somewhere. Doesn't get a lot of miles so I'm going to top it off an keep and eye on it and see how much it leaks. The manual specifically...

    Kia ATF/PSF compatibility

    I contacted Valvoline and they confirmed that it is a Dexron III even saying Dex/Merc is fine. I don't remember the prices, if MaxLife is only a few bucks more for a gallon I'll probably go with that, otherwise I'll look for another brand name Dex/Merc on sale. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div...

    Kia ATF/PSF compatibility

    Ok, thanks for the replies, I'll go with Maxlife. If PSF-III is just Dexron III, I wonder why they didn't just spec one fluid all the way around?

    Kia ATF/PSF compatibility

    I have a question about Kia ATF & PSF. The transmission calls for M-III or Dexron-IIE and the power steering is PSF-III. Is PSF-III just Dexron III? Would any modern 'Dex/Merc' fluid work for both applications? <img src="http://i.imgur.com/V7DVoS3.jpg" class="post-image" alt="" />

    <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: ZeeOSix</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Made 9/22/2014. </div></div> Interesting, so I suppose this predates the reported tearing issues? It must have been a shelf queen because I installed it in April 2016 and...

    Purolator Classic L14610, 5825 miles – CUT OPEN

    I cut open a Purolator Classic L14610 that was on my Kia and has 5825 miles running Mobil Super 5000 10W30 oil over about 2 years. Not sure how to interpret the manufacture code. The pleats were tight all the way around except near the crimp. I couldn't see any tears anywhere. The black rubber...

    Filter recommendation (Fram/Purolator/Other)

    The reason I initially narrowed it down to Fram/Purolator is because that's usually what I recall finding locally. I have to drive a little further to find the Wix and my Napa usually has to order everything. K&N is a good deal but not sure I want to stock up on a bunch of filters for this car...

    Filter recommendation (Fram/Purolator/Other)

    It's been a while since I've researched oil filters. Back in the day Purolators were well regarded so I would typically grab a white Purolator Classic for around $2 and change but noticed that they got a make-over and now sell for around $6, the midgrade filter is $9 and the premium is $13. And...

    Bearing selection question

    I stopped by Motion & picked up a couple of double seal, electric motor grade, made in Japan NSK bearings. They seem like good quality, certainly better than what came out of the motor. I'll slap it together tomorrow and see how it turns out. Thanks for your help everyone.

    Bearing selection question

    The bearings I pulled have black rubber seals on each side. Dust protection is important because I think that's why the one got noisy. Also the roller bearings for the treadmill belt have similar bearings and those are PPl Poland 6203DU. I looked at this SKF literature and they list so many...

    Bearing selection question

    Gentlemen, I'm currently rebuilding a 3hp treadmill motor. It was always kind of loud but recently was making scratchy sound and followed a high pitch whine. So I pulled the motor and broke it down to check the bearings. I estimate this motor has about 2500 hours (aprox. 1 hour a day for 7...
