Bullying obese people is not acceptable, and this thread is an example of such bullying. So many Americans want to be the light of the world, and then do stuff like this. I just do not think it's cool.

Only time I've had to replace parking brake shoes was when a friend started off in my '60 Dodge with the parking brake on. He thought it was a bit down on power! The brake let loose with an awful bang, and as I recall tore the pads right off. New pad

I have never had any luck with car parts tools. To me, they seem like overpriced HF tools. Perhaps these US assembled ones are of better quality?

Api CJ4 is low SAPS oil only in term of HDEO, it's actually full SAPS when used in small passenger cars. SAPS limit for CJ4 is 1.0, and for C3 oils is 0.8.

None of these mentioned engines have filters. All of them will be ran in 60*F+ weather with the exception of the oil consuming yard vac. It might see temps in the 30s, but that's about it. Didn't someone here post a photo of a thermometer gun readin

The Iron and Chromium were consistent in the two UOA's, so at least the situation isn't accelerating.

For $400 drive make sure its road worthy(they rot in terrible places) but otherwise a nice throw away car if repairs exceed its value.

Hi DS9 Didn't hear much about it to be honest, and never looked into it because it's pricey. One thing I did heard is from my friend (Mazda tech) that they use Eneos C3 oils at Mazda dealers here, and that they supposedly are very good.

The Copper is very high, but there's no Lead to go with it, so I don't think you have a bearing issue. Probably the oil cooler shedding Copper.

CI-4 is not low ash where as CJ-4 is. It all depends on if there is emission control stuff down stream of the engine. Diesel Particulate filters require low ash (CJ-4) formulation.
