I'll bet those heads aren't torqued correctly.

Copy that! Did you see the piston cooling jets?

We don’t torque bolts any more! We tighten them to an angle of rotation  :blink:!

aluminum block, steel insert sleeves, oil jets and soon electric motors! It’s true the world is flat!

Cooling jets are new to me.  Pretty cool.

360Rocket......definitely a lot of work but got to appreciate the dedication. I may be that way with my '64 GTO! Got to keep these beasts alive and kicking!

Cooling jets cool the underside crown of the piston to help control combustion temps.

Well I am a bit OCD when it comes to oil and oil changes. best oil, rigid oil change schedule, and a consistent maintenance schedule.

 

GTO- Royal Purple Full Synthetic with a Royal Purple or K&N oil filter EVERY 3,000 miles or 6 months whichever comes first which has always been 6 months.

C6 Corvette- Mobil 1 5W30 Full Synthetic with a Mobil 1 filter or K&N oil filter. EVERY 3,000 miles or 6 months which is usually at 3K miles.

NOW, before I complete EITHER oil change above I drain the old oil, remove old filter, replace with STP oil of similar viscosity and a new filter and run the engine for @ 10 minutes and then drain, replace filter again. THEN I add the above listed oils and filters.

 

YES its overkill, yes its more expensive but I've never lost an engine, I've never gotten less than 140K miles out of my engines, and I sleep better at night. I gotta chuckle at those that try and squeeze every last mile out of their oil they can and complain of the price of oil. Compare it to the price of spun bearings or a engine rebuild and I think you'll AGREE that the price of an oil change is nominal.

That’s what I’m talkin bout! Kind of my point in past posts!

A quick note with more aluminum motors being produced and the advent of things like oil cooling jets, be careful if any of you judge oil by color or opacity! Aluminum oxide has now clouded that result to some degree masking the oxidation properties with a blackening effect, (aluminum oxide). You’ll need to change how you look at it.
