Hmmm...what's cycling every 5 minutes? I regularly check all 220VAC connections/terminals/breakers/etc. with aluminum wire to be sure they are tight. These have a habit of loosening over time and will arc on heavy loads like A/C units. They should

If it's a direct cross reference then no worries. A filter's bypass valve setting depends a lot on the filter's design, so 20 different oil filters specified for the same engine might not have the same exact bypass valve setting, just like you showe

The 747-8 is considerably more fuel efficient than the 747-400 because of new engines, materials and aerodynamics. Cosmetic changes make the interior more attractive as well. Made in the same factory as all 747s. Unfortunately, the 747-8 does litt

You could probably buy a used one in decent shape for $3k, then have it fully restored by a shop for $40k. Then have money left over.

I've been a performance car enthusiast since 1992...and a nuclear/combustion engineer since 1979. Yet, I never really got deep into the science/nuts & bolts of motor oils until 2014 when I was intrigued on some stuff I read over at LS1Tech.com.
