Okay, so we've probably all heard about the detergents and special additives in oils. Where I went to school the lesson was, if the additives are the same, so is the oil.?
Oil discussions are about like political discussion. Everyone has an opinion. [
Does anyone know for certain if the clutch runs in the motor oil on Rangers? I was so told by a dealer. Seems like a clutch would slip bad running in oil, ie: slipping like a greasy clutch.
Off the path, my Cat 4000 psi high pressure washer pump is supposed to run only, Cat oil. The pump has had a full synthetic engine oil running in it now for 5+ years, used very often, and has been changed 3x. With no indications of any problems with the pump, no leaks, squeeks or break downs.
As far as Lucas oil goes, I'm a fan there too. I use it in very heavy applications. Their semi 5th wheel lube is the best I've found. When a product stands up to heavy earth moving equipment and semi tractor trailer use, with zero incidents of failure, it's good enough for me.
I'd appreciate any input about the oils / fluids.
The rest is my 2 cents worth.
