Jeffrey C.;

Welcome to the group.

High mileage, infrequent oil-filter changes,over heating, low oil levels and low viscosity oils can cause hydraulic lifters to drain. Wear and poor cam to valve adjustment could be a problem.

... Most engine wear happens at start-up. A pre-oiling system helps prevent these conditions.

Have a good one while you can still laugh about it.. Don S..

Why is it that the politicians in D.C. are the only ones that don’t know there are better things to make Ethanol out of than corn?… Answer… They know! They know! Guess why they don’t correct the problem.

PLEASE >>> A SIG similar to mine can be VERY HELPFUL to all the members!
