  • Lack of Oil Does it Again

    Here's another ebay no bargain part for sale. It would be good for a "HARD LUCK" trophy I guess.
    Maybe it came from my neighbor's leaf blower, when his wife used straight gas instead of gas/oil mix. I'm also not a believer in these super lean mix ratios, like 40:1 and even 100:1. I still use the old standard of 16:1 in all my 2 stroke engines.

      Switching to synthetic oil
      by Michael M
      So as not to hijack the other oil thread on here, I thought I would ask a new question in a new thread.

      It seems conventional wisdom says you can mix conventional oil and synthetic. Its also been reported that conventional oil will detract from the superior performance of synthetic oil and reduce its benefits.

      It's also a given that a quart or more oil stays in the tray...

      Sorry for bringing this up..............
      by Jeff/Illinois
      .........did a search and didn't really find what I was after, but is 5w -whatever- oil too thin for a Model A Ford? I know a lot of guys run 15w-40 Delco I get it, but would 5w30 be a bit too thin? Does that create low oil pressure issues? Reason I'm asking is I can get 5 qt. jugs of 5w30 Motorcraft on sale kinda cheap this week. Semi-synthetic. I realize the 'winter' lower number is for quicker...

      Marvel Mystery Oil, MMO
      by Mitch
      We have not had a good informative MMO thread yet on the VFF. Discussing all the positives, any negatives or even the smell may help others.

      One benefit is MMO helps lubricate the valve guides / stems when its mixed with the fuel. Personally ( many use it) i am not a proponent of adding it to the oil, i don't like thinning out the viscosity. If i ever did need to try and free up a stuck...

      Starting an older engine - oil in the dipper tray...
      by KB9JLO
      As a few of you know - I have a 1930 Town Sedan, Murphy Body (March 1930). And she's a little rough. My wife has already named her Millie. The engine hasn't run in some time and I want to attempt to get it started and see what all is wrong and needs to be fixed in the drivetrain. If I don't have to I don't want to drop the oil pan or remove the valve cover to see if I can get this started. The engine...

      Valve lubrication, or not!
      by DaWizard
      I have been seeing folk getting all over MMO and questioning the reason for using it. Well, I think it is time to clear a bit of air within these airheads and explain why MMO or Seafoam, or these top end lubricants are almost a must.

      If you will take a look at this picture of the valve chamber, you will see to the right a copper tube protruding from the bottom of the valve valley. Well,...

      Not the normal oil question
      by Standing Elk
      Let's see if I can remember enough of what I was told to ask this question. Apparently the EPA mandated the removal or maybe the addition of some component to motor oil?? I was told that the new formula now carries an additional code and that it should NOT be used in our motors. Can anyone shed some light on this? Thanks

      Oil and the changes manufacturers are doing per the epa.
      by BNCHIEF
      This is not to say anything bad about any oil or brand just some info to consider.http://www.restore-an-old-car.com/be...ssic-cars.html They are taking all the zddp out of the oil we run. Right now I have delo 400LE, being discontinued, I also have shell rotella T-4 both are 15/40 these still have the zddp in the higher concentration. You can also buy zddp https://www.thoughtco.com/...

      Model T's don't have oil pumps.
      by Tom Hicks
      The Model T does not have an oil pump. The engine and transmission share an oil pan, they are both bathed in the same oil. That oil is picked up by dippers under the connecting rods and slung around the engine. The magneto is attached to the flywheel and the bottom of it spins through the sump throwing oil everywhere. Ford had a funnel and tube system to catch some of that oil slung by the magneto...

      600 W oil
      by slammin
      I see some confusion on what 600 W really is. One search states that the company originally making 600W was bought by Mobile years ago. Mobil offers Mobil - 1 Gallon Bottle, SAE 140 Mineral Gear Oil

      Viscosity (SUS) 30.6 at 100°C, 460 at 40°C Sq. mm/s, ISO 460
      Most vendors offer 600W by the quart, prices ranging from $7.50 to $10.30 I use Mobile industrial oils for the machinery in my shop...
