    Ideas on Uses for Spare Vert Shaft V-twin

    Hi all, a couple of seasons ago the transmission failed in the riding mower I was using. The rest of the machine is in good shape. A replacement hydro unit, or even sourcing a used one was at or more than the value of the mower. Its capabilities were marginal for my property anyway (steep slope...

    Finally Found Factory Ammo my 308 Bolt Gun Likes

    A couple years ago I bought a Thompson Center Venture in 308. I liked the specs, the price, and they are all supposed to be MOA or better before leaving the factory. Since purchase I've struggled to find ammunition that's accurate and repeatable. No matter whether it was firing cheap ammo, or...

    Infrequent Use- Anything Protect Better @ Startup

    I have a 2004 F150 with the 5.4 V8. Picked it up about 9 months ago, and based on it not being driven many miles will probably change the oil at 12 months. (Purchased from Carmax, as soon as I got it home, dumped whatever they used, spun on a MC filter and added MC 5w20 synthetic blend)...

    75w140 Gear Oil for F150

    BITOG.... I've come to make the proverbial mountain out of a molehill in regards to a gear oil choice. I have a 2004 F150 that I recently purchased with 125k miles. It has a 5.4 liter engine and is 4x4. It's in great shape in and out, and runs well. The manufacturer says the axle is "lubed for...

    Recent motor rebuild for my Nissan 240SX, help me pick an oil!

    I figure this question probably doesn't come up much, so I'm looking forward to hearing some suggestions and ideas. I have a 1991 Nissan 240SX(KA24DE DOHC). The motor was rebuilt about 6000 miles ago. I ran 1000 miles on whatever the mechanic who rebuilt the motor put in there per his request...

    BMW specifies 10w60 oil?!?!

    I needed to go over to one of the BMW forums to do a search, and ran across a service bulletin they had posted about connecting rod bearing replacement in certain engines. I browsed over it, and saw they instructed the technicians to coat the new bearings in 10w60 motor oil. I thought they might...

    Mixing diferent oil weights in between changes?

    I changed my oil about 400 miles ago on my 95 camaro using 10w30 mobil 1 and an STP filter. The motor has 130k miles, and has loosened up enough where I want to run a little bit thicker oil, especially since it's been in the high 90's here in tennessee for the past little bit. I have a pretty...

    Ok, you guys get to pick an oil filter for me!!

    After reading Bobs thread where he tested some oil filters I am rethinking using PureOne filters(these are what I normally use). Here's what I have- 95 Camaro Z28, fairly heavily modified. I have all the bolt on parts such as an intake, headers and high flow exhaust etc. I also have ported...
