describes C34 owners' lubrication system upgrade projects.
Please contribute yours!
I have been using 5W-50 Castrol Syntec oil for the past several
years now. Since synthetic oil is a "pure" oil' ,i.e., no
detergents, no additives, low moisture adsorption, etc., I felt it
perfect for my universal 25xp. I'm also noticing that the engine
runs cooler even with all the upgrades, for example, 15x10 three
blade prop and Powerline 130 Amp alternator. Any comments? (firstname.lastname@example.org)
