    Fleetguard WF2074 Coolant Filter Cut Open

    Wix 51515XP Cut Open

    I finally bought the filter cutter that I've always wanted, and this is the first one I used it on. This is a Wix 51515XP that was run on a 2007 Chrysler Hemi 5.7L V8 for 18,000 miles. The media appears to have held up really well. There's no damage that I can see and the pleats are still...

    Fleetguard LF777 performance

    Ive found various forum conversations about this filter, and at some point the micron rating comes up, and someone will post some really awful micron number allegedly from Fleetguard and then the discussion ends. It seems to get written off as an old design not worth anyone's time. From what I...

    Considering going to 5W-40 synthetic

    I have a small block chevy V8 which I have been running 15W-40 in since the day it was built, which was about 30K miles ago. It's a 383 and makes around 450HP. It's been doing great on the 15W-40 and I've only been putting around 3000-5000 miles a year on it. Now that I've moved to a bigger...

    Tecumseh flathead burning oil

    I've got a tecumseh 2.5hp on a motorized bike. I've been running Delo 400 15w-40 just because its what I keep around for my truck and it seemed like a good choice. The problem is, the motor doesn't have any oil smoke on startup or when its cold, but half way on my commute home in the evening...

    Oil for Tecumseh 2.5HP

    I have an old Tecumseh 2.5HP motor that's going on a motorized bike I'm building for short distance commuting to help save on gas. During the summer it'll get started in the cool of the morning, probably around 70 degrees but the motor is going to also be working hard in 100+ degree heat. During...
