You've got to take a minute and make this your Picture on you profile!
I have told many people of your truck and Cat power!
And as a Snowmobiler I have been on the watch and had hoped to pick one up at Hay Days but it didn't happen.
Thanks I'll give it a try
That's awesome, for a profile! Nice job! Been catching up on the thread from the begining, and understanding a lot more! Pretty entertaining!
Don't know why I missed this before bu just now happened to read your post. Mine is a 2002 K6A but maybe this will help in some way. I always do my own oil changes and all other things pertaining to any vehicles I own. I was using 20W/50 oil as I live in the Philippines and (old school thoughts) figured I was doing good with the thicker viscosity oil. Started to get the classic symptoms of worn valve seals and was considering doing the seals. Note: the specs call for 5W/30 oil. As I was gathering info on what I would need to do the valve seals. it came time for a oil change. The place I normally buy oil was out of stock of 20W/50 so I just bought 5W/30 and changed it thinking I would go back to the heavier oil when I did the valve seals. Within 1000 Kms the smoking stopped and the bad valve stem seal symptoms disappeared. Been a couple years ago this happened and it still doesn't need the seals and I have continued to use 5W/30. It has over 257,000 Kms on the odometer.
I run 0/ 40 synthetic in mine. Using Amsoil now. Seems good from - 20 to +100 farenhieght .
These are great points guys! To reiterate, the point completely, Fred is a retired old school mechanic that has taught us a lot over the years, and Kent has and is proving his point with his work! Truly outstanding guys!
