Re: Confused about which oil weight to use

Sounds like a great idea. I will definitely do that! I put the thermostat in yesterday (which it probably never had one in it); and ran the motor for 10 min at 2300 rpm (no load), then cooled down at idle for 5 min. and she ran warm-to-touch; at both speeds. -the motor sounded like normal, and I had good water flow out of the exhaust. So far so good. It starts on first turn of the key, everytime. Thanks!!
