7000 hours????? That's not a very good recommendation for Rotella!
I have a firend that's got 33,000 hours on a 706 Farmall diesel. He claims he's overhauled at about 11,000 hour intervals on straight weight oils that were not Rotella!

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

He did not say why he had to tear apart the engine. It could have been from cavitation or head gasket, or a number of things not related to lubrication issues.

OK, I'm a little less concerned about the fact that I have been using Rotella without incident for many years now. Honestly, I doubt that I put more than 200 hours on any piece of equipment between oil changes, so I feel pretty good.

The way I had it put to me one day... and I forget who said it... but his remark was that Rotella was a modest quality oil with a top notch marketing program and a top shelf price.
That still doesn't mean it's a bad oil...
I've never used it myself. I've never heard anything bad about it either... so I'd say if it works fine for you; use it.
Biggest thing in avoiding wear is to avoid hard cold starts and keep the oil and filter changed within the manufacturers recomendations... or when you notice oil degredation.
I have one I change at 100 hours use though it's recomended at 150 hours... but basically it starts slowly consuming oil around 70-80 hours use on hard work... oil is degrading abit... so I change it when it gets down to the add mark.. unless it's really low hours since the last change.
