A filter near or completely inverted is going to drain back from the center tube a considerable amount of its oil. Drain back is not an apocalypse for an engine, but it's better it didn't.

In the past I used DTE 26 in the gearbox of my mills but I now live in Hawaii and none is available locally. Mobil Gear 600 XP 68 is available. Can the gear oil be used in place of the hydraulic oil? Thanks, Rob

Yeah, I'm all about grinding my own, too. We usually grind chuck roast. The color thing seems pretty normal to me for packaged ground beef.

It's there to create a low pressure area under the engine area, to allow more air to easily enter the radiator. Like when you have a rear window open in a 4 door car and you also have a front door window open. The air seems to just flow through a lot

Since we are on the talks of oil filters, I am using a Purolator Pure One that I bought on 2012. Should I get rid of it? How are the Mobil 1 Extended Performance filters? It seems there is good reviews on here for the higher end Frams?

I usually go maybe every year or 2 just randomly with someone or a group of people. I prefer 10 pin, I used to bowl in a league when I was a kid. (well, young teenager) About 50% or less of the bowling alleys still remain though. Kinda sad.

The color change is "normal". In saying that, after having worked in a meat department for a few years, I buy the meat and grind my own. Usually Costco stew beef and boneless pork loin chop, 75% / 25% mix.
