    Why don't you use Linux ?

    One thing that fascinates me are people and their home computers and the OS they choose. Everyday people are happy as a lark using their I phones, Android phones, I pads, Samsung pads. Mention the word Linux OS on the home computer and these same people freeze and go into shock, why ? Other than...

    Any Clay shooters here ?

    if so what is your sport and favorite tool ? In the 80's early 90's I was very serious in Sporting Clays & Skeet and some trap. Back in those days I was one of the top shooters in Michigan, an injury forced retirement. I used an 870 tricked out by Kerry Allor who ran the show @MagnaPort, he's...

    Lets talk scopes.

    What are you using ? My scopes are old but high end Nikon (Japan), Bausch & Lomb Elite, Burris. I need a new scope for my soon to come Savage 223. The shop I worked at sold lots of Vortex scopes. Is scope tech today so advanced that lower priced scopes are better than high end scopes of old ?

    Bolt action .223, best bang for the $ ?

    Tired of being held hostage on .22mag ammo and the cost doesn't justify it over the .223. I want an accurate low cost bolt .223 for range fun and a varmint here & there. Ruger Americans get good reviews, what's your pick ? BTW, my 22mag is an older CZ but I don't want to spend that much on...

    Concours 14 has crazy long oil change intervals ?

    My Concours 14 list 7,500 miles for oil changes, I know other brands spec the same type long (5,000, 6,000, 7,500) oil change. It does not say anything about using synthetic or mineral oil, only list the oil spec's (SJ)10W-40 recommended. Now, most of us here know that motorcycles can really...

    Kawasaki KZ1000 and T6 5W-40

    I have an 81 KZ1000 that's run nothing but Valvoline Motorcycle 10W-40 most of it's life. The Valvoline has been doing it's job for many years, this also seem to be a popular oil for this bike. My question is because of the cost of Valvoline in my area is getting rather high, I can get Rotella...

    Michelin cross terrain replacement ?

    Michigan had a real bad winter this year and I was real impressed with the cross terrains on my 2wd 98 F150. As bad as the winter was this is the first time I ever felt safe driving 2wd PU through all the snow & muck. My wife felt the same, if weather was bad she wouldn't go out unless we took...

    I need help with blending.

    I have 2 5qt. Jugs of QSUD 5W-20 that I would like to use in a motor that calls for 5W-30. The system totals 5qt. I was thinking about using Rotella T6 5W-40 to bring the QSUD up to 5W-30 level, something like 3qt QSUD and 2qt. T6. Is there a chart somewhere that will show the correct mixture ...

    Air cooled engine in cold weather ?

    I was over at one of my friends house and he showed me the new snow blade on his old JD mower. Looked nice, then I noticed that he had a piece of burlap taped over the air shroud intake...I said what the heck is that for ??? He told me that it restricted the air flow enough that his engine ran...

    Valvoline is dirty, or ?

    Yes, Valvoline is dirty or it becomes immune to its self. My Father-in-Law's 1998 Dodge Caravan 3.0L (98,000 mi.) has used nothing but Valvoline 10W-30 its whole life. He has always changed the oil & filter every 3,000 mi. without fail. The last 5yrs I've changed the oil for him and I noticed...

    BMW dealers say no synthetic oil in 87 325i

    My 87 325i 2.5 L has 90,000 mi. and just out of curiosity I called the dealer and asked what oil I should be using, I told them where I live its real hard finding BMW approved oil. I asked if Rotella T6 5W-40 or M1 0W-40 would be ok. They told me both oils are very good but not to use synthetic...
