Bacon Drippings in my oil pan!?

Postby farmallcub49 » Fri Jul 09, 2004 10:11 pm

When I pulled my dipstick out tonight there was what looked like bacon drippings on the dipstick for at least a few inches. I then reinserted it and pulled out more, but it was less. I know the previous owner had run synthetic oil in Snappy prior to me owning it. I have only run ND 30W in it since I owned it.

How long has it been since you put the 30w nd in it ?
It sounds like the two did not mix.
If it's been broken I did it.
If its not broken wait till I touch it.

Why would you change from a synthetic oil to a non-detergent 30-weight oil?. (Just curious)

I don't know why I did, I just didn't see the need for synthetic oil in my cub. Why would someone change from ND to syn without a proper rebuild of the engine?

Can't speak for anyone other than myself, but this summer I decided to try blended oil in my 48 that was last rebuilt 17 years ago. It has improved my oil pressure which was getting pretty low.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

That was a fair answer. :P

If you are going to try and clean out your "Bacon-Drippings" I think I would use some detergent 30-weight for about 5-hours and change it again. The oil I use in everything I run except my diesel is still under a buck a quart so I dont skimp on oil changes.
