One other question I had is, what grade of oil and brand do you guys run?
I'm the nut case that runs the dino based Shell Rotella T 15W-40 and/or Mobile Delcvac 15W-40 diesel based stuff. I've had very good results with it, but Shell and Mobil have changed the formulation and now there isn't as much zinc as there once was. My next oil change will be the Shell Rotella Synthetic based 5W-40 diesel. Lot's of guys have good luck with the Mobile one 15W50...which also has recently changed formulas. Before my switch to the diesel based oils I was all about Castrol GTX 20W-50. Be forewarned that the oil debate has been discussed on Pelican ad nauseum!
back in the saddle: '95 993 - just another black C2
*SOLD*: '87 930 GP White - heroin would have been a cheaper addiction...
