No raise for me in 6 years but I'm in management. My pay was nice through the recession though. The hourly employees get an annual review and up to 3.5% raise per year. I've asked for all but 2 raises in my life and got every one. I've never been

My E430 never had engine temp above 95-98C even in mostly stop and little go traffic. But my S2000 did excess 205-206F occasionally in stop and go traffic, but the temperature dropped to mid 180F as soon as traffic resumed normal speed.

When I was with former company for most years I got 2 pay raises a year, I doubled my salary in 7 years. I think my salary increased faster than anyone in our group of about 50-55 engineers. I also got higher stock options and grants every year too.

On a side note, when I was using Mobil 1, I didn't need a seperatly moly grease for the spine. You could feel it starting to fade at around 8k but that was good enough as I grease every time I change oil.

Darn, I just bought a tube of Synpower and was planning on using just that on my Toyota truck. Now I'm having second thoughts. Thus far I've never used a moly grease on U joints, just the drive shaft spline...

Trav, from the following quote, it appears that they have no choice but to make the gasoline operation as painful as possible...maybe the class action should be extended to the regulators if it has lead to an unsafe situation. Originally Posted By:

I work for a DOD contractor. Our pay is set by what they call AWD or Area Wage determination. They set the pay scale by the average pay of workers in the same field in your area. I haven't had a raise in 6 years.

If you look at crosses for the slightly larger Kohler 52 050 02 (yellow can in thread link in DSparks post) you'll see the 3614 crossovers like Supertech ST3614 and Motorcraft FL-910S. http://www.oilfilter-crossreference.com/convert/KOHLER/52%20050%
