Oil SAE30 VS SAE 30HD

Recommended Posts

Kenh

I've been running 15W40 diesel oil (Chevron Delo or Shell Rotella) in mine without issue.  I do switch to 5W30 in the winter though.  My skid steer with an Onan runs 15W40 year round as I have a heat pad on the bottom of the oil sump so the engine is toasty warm for startup.

My understanding has always been that you use non-detergent oils in engines with no oil filter system as you want the gunk to settle into the bottom of the pan instead of flowing around. Oil filter systems will filter the gunk out of the oil so you want detergents to keep everything in suspension.

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
