    Thanks for the reply guys. It's done. Just put in 0w40sn mobil1 and an mb filter made in Italy. Looking forward to the longer drain. Hopefully the oil consumption stays on it's current downward trend.

    oil rec for a 1988 300e MB

    I have some good ideas, but am wondering what the masses here on bitog would use. The car is a 1988 Mercedes Benz 300e with the I6 m103 powerplant. The od reads 195000. The car is driven twice a day for a total of about 75 miles to and from work. Split is around 80/20 HW/City. I Have run about 3...

    "50 weight" motor oils

    Are the oils of the same brand, and class. Such as pyb5w30sm, and pyb20w50sm. If so im sure it would be ok. Let your oil pressure give you the final ok. You are just trying to burn through a stash right?

    Leaking Carb - GX 160

    Man, so sorry. I looked right at that and somehow read gcv160. Gasket set and needle set are most diffidently cheaper than replacing the whole part. BTW in over 5yrs of repairing Honda carbs I have not seen a plastic float failure. I clean the seat with rubbing compound and a q-tip. Youtube...

    High performance air cooled two strokes

    Iso, and JASO are not the end all to 2x oil selection. Ultra is only JASO FB. Your 2x engine type i.e. strato, open port, closed port or 4mix and there exhaust system types all have there own special needs. Like you said, most oils when mixed with the correct grade of fuel at the right ratios...

    My car after using Nu Finish

    I don't know about a wax product, but have you tried Cling? I use the Nufinish paste once a year in the fall, and Cling in between. I cant imagine a spray on wax without abrasives effecting it if washing it doesn't.

    Honda versamow mowers

    The fj180v kawi is pressure lubed w/ a bypass valve. Even the homeowner model that has no oil filter. The main crank bearings however are the only places that get oil delivered by the pump. Cylinder, rod, and writs pin are all still splashed.
