OMG, be still my beating heart, Pat actually posted :shock:

Buddy, please do yourself a favor and put your location in your sig or profile, before you get hollered at [-X

Browns win!!! first win in, uh 635 days...

Yes folks, for those in the states following American football, the hapless Cleveland Browns finally won a game, and duly noted in the postgame report that it was their first win, in, wait for it, 635 DAYS!!! :shock:

Found that interesting, as the number 635 has such a nice ring to it \:D/

Re: Tell us what type of motor oil you prefer?

Wow, just saw this :roll:

Tommy, Ken is right, that oil is WAY too light for an M30, especially one with 285k on the clock [-X

I think Mobile 1 makes 15W40 or 15W50, you should be using something like that [-o<

Re: Looking for some help help identifying this washer

Me thinks you hit the nail on the head regarding that giant Bellville (wavy) washer :-k Been a long time, but I seem to recall that washer being installed behind the "big honkin' nut" on the crankshaft that holds the harmonic balancer in place, with about a million foot pounds of torque #-o But like...
