Supposedly my boss always ran straight 30 in his '00 K2500 (6.0) until very recently - 260K and it runs just fine. Also runs fine on the Maxlife 10w30 I put in it, too. :-P

I may never do another personal oil change again, so however many miles are on the Roadmaster when/if ever it decides to give up. Starting to believe oil changes are a bit of a sham. 👍

Not the original timing chain, though - correct?

It is RARE to see a nylon cam sprocket go over 100,000...... let alone 250,000+

I saw some EMD SD70M's that went 1.3 million miles with no turbo replacement or internal engine work. On straight 40 weight. Does that count? smile

There are soooo many of you who don't understand that a lot of modern monogrades can pass cold flow test for 15W. You live in Florida, Oklahoma, Texas, Arizona but you say you need 0W or 5W something.

I'm with userfriendly on this one...

Pretty much any GM V8 built from sometime around 1973-74(?) and later (up into the 80's) had the dreaded nylon camshaft gear. Lord, have I changed a few of those in my life!!! crazy crzy
