Re: What engine oil are you using??

After a few weeks researching and testing some of these mineral oils I've come up with the following information.

Re: What engine oil are you using??

My ( limited ) understanding was that a good mineral could be as good as a synthetic but a synthetic will keep its properties much longer and therefore allow longer service intervals. I change my oil and filter once a year ( usually a day or two before the nationals! ) approx 1500 miles. It's hardl...

Re: What engine oil are you using??

With all older engines you need to check the zinc content (parts per million, ppm). Where our engines use flat tappet cams it isn't worth the risk to pick an oil with less than 1000ppm. Try and pick one between 1000 and 1500ppm. I've written a piece for the next magazine explaining all the other fun...

Re: Diesel(?) MK2 Estate at auction October 1st.

I wonder if it has been converted, some farmers would do such things so that they could use red diesel. There is also a brand new Perkins crate diesel engine!

Have you started making these? I wouldn't want to make a competition of it.

I've also some other ideas for 3D that I will post in the mag next time round.
