Yeah, but these guys are running all highway miles with not much stop and go. Besides, they have 35 litres (quarts) in the crank case or something crazy like that.BC Cruiser said:I'd say every 5000km, oil also degrades over time, so 6 months sounds good. On a seperate note, the detroit series 60 run about 35000km between changes, and some have gone 70000+.
Tapage said:I thought 5 K is sometimes to much .. thnking in my off road use. When I go to heavy mud wheeling, we need to use my 2H at high rpm's in order to keep the wheels spining and momentum ..
So always I checking my diesel km/g and oil press are clear points that mean for me it's time to change my oil ..
all that I know it's I havo more diesel that I can burn in my 2H engine .. so driving around the city, no matter what kind of traffic we have, no more than 450ºF in my EGT ..bigbrowndog said:Weeelll, looks like I am the only one running his pump to the point of over fueling and advance,to squeeze a few more horses.
Cheers , sounds like a good reason to keep the interval between oil changes short . cheersTapage said:all that I know it's I havo more diesel that I can burn in my 2H engine .. so driving around the city, no matter what kind of traffic we have, no more than 450ºF in my EGT ..
But in the mud is other story spining strong my 37" with chains in 3rd gear .. I can go over 1200ºF easy .. If I not paying atention to my Pyro ..
Thats the best way to do it. Mines run an hour meter too. Cause if you are doing highway only it is a waste to change the oil early.......Little Joe said:I run an hour meter and in my normal driving 5000km works out to roughly 100hrs. Oil changes every 100hrs is treating a little diesel very well.
With a lot of highway , sometimes hit 6-6500km in 100hrs.
