    I ahve had my cruiser for about a year now and its been a work in progress until now. My question is What should I do to the engine as far as "cleaning" it up. I mean the inside what should I do to make sure it runs efficiently? It starts up and sounds good Hell it even runs good but I dont want any problems in the future. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    In my opinion, everyone has a different one, Just do normal maintenance change your oil 3000 or 3 months, tune-up every 35,000 and burn good fuel if it is available in your area.

    Where I live there is ethanol fuels available but I prefer to burn the all dinosaur stuff.

    I do things yearly....every spring, it gets a complete runthru, plugs, cap, rotor, full fluids, etc. I also run an hourmeter since wheeling doesn't put on many miles but lots of engine use....every 50 hours for engine oil, if not more frequently, is my plan....

    (Have 10 hours after 2 trips out...)
