We put stock screen doors on the front and back. They were to short for the opening. We just put wood above each door to close in the extra space. No one ever pays any attention to the space above those doors that is closed in by the wood.

The Castrol HM is one of my pet oils but it is thick for grade and as far as being a syn blend it appears to be on the low side for a blend as far as I can tell. Some of the Dexos oils are 50 percent or more. I'm guessing it wouldn't pass for one a

They don't want to 'confuse' people with '15W' oils, so it is being called '16'. I think it's stupid - it's just a slightly thinner 0W-20 with a lower HT/HS value. Call it 0W-20 'light' or something, not a new number!

Some of my mid 90's fords used to crack heater cores unless you put grounding straps on the heater core. Electrolysis would eat them and they would leak inside the car.

I have the same supertech 75w90 in my 04 silverado rear diff. I don't think I will ever change it again. No severe duty. And I'll sell it before I put another 50K miles on it. You are good for at least 50K to 100K miles normal driving.

I've noticed that in Canada a lot of Canadian-Tire oils are starting to come in those Citgo style bottles. None of the PCMO's are yet; it's some of the HDEO, marine, and OPE oils that are. Interesting to see if this trend continues....

I've been doing 10K OCIs with various M1 oils for 38 years in engines often calling for 3-5K OCIs. I have never had an engine that showed signs of engine wear for the last 38 years. Some engines with well over 300K. Just my story.
