How Cool is this! Tell us how much you love/hate your engine

A new forum!

Now if only I could get around to changing the oil in the beast called universal 5416, it's really not that hard to do either.. takes about ten minutes with the little hand pump. It came with a drain hose already connected to the oil pan. hate that,

Question: Do all Diesels have black oil in the crankcase? In mine it turns black within a few hours after being changed. Hate that too,

Funny, that sound it makes like a jackhammer has become a sweet sound to me.. that clunker keeps on a chugging... always starts, never ever quits, runs 6-12 hrs if I want to head down river to the C&D. Love that!

So.. I guess you could say I love Diesels!

thanks Mods and Admin! You really do listen to us!

Diesels are great!! Tough as nails and hard to kill.

You're welcome for the forum. It was a good suggestion on your part.

love the D-man

how many people keep a pic of their beautiful engine in their wallet?

Picture of my guy:


Well, I doubt that attachment worked so you'll have to take my word for it, My engine is the most handsome (engines are male , at least mine is ), He is big and strong (but doesn't have to prove himself), he is clean, easy going but also can be serious when I need him to be. He is Volvo green but that only adds to his mystique.
