L.B. we have to remember that when the 8Ns were built, Oils were quite a bit different than now. 30wt. which was probably the most widely used would become like molasses at below freezing temps, so it could be successfully thinned somewhat with kerosene. But then, if the bearings were a little loose in hot weather, you just added a quart or two of 50wt. to quiet them down. Ever thought about how long a modern engine would last if they were treated that way?

 Re: Oil Question in reply to ShadetreeRet, 10-26-2013 22:02:50  
Im with you a 100%, Im just saying what would somebody say today who has never heard of that. I had. I had a long post with someone who is very up too snuff, but can only "move forward newest, yuppy sayin" I made the suggestion about 65 an 70 year tractors and made it this far with Non-det St Wt 30wt oil and is showing some crank and rod bearing wear and shows oil pressure that is not unusual as so many years have got a little low. I say these engines are very tuff, forgiving an simple. That's it and had they had proper maintenance been used with less abuse some have faced there would no parts tractors. Master of the Obvious L.B,
