  1. Mobil 1 Synthetic Oil

    Bolts Plus has taken over the Acklands/Grainger store last year. I was there a couple of times & not impressed w/ the service. No stock on simple items (standard thread shoulder bolts), wrong items ordered. CCS has a location in Ptbo, but is small. I dealt w/ them all the time @ their Oshawa location. I haven't really dealt w/ Fastenal as it wasn't my 'go to' source in Oshawa. Besides it's adjacent to the DriveTest location & like my truck in 1 piece.

    When it comes to o rings, I don't think you could beat the product that a reputable hydraulic or industrial supply shop. That being said, I'd be leary of Brafasco/HD Supply. A month ago I was looking for some stainless M6 x 20 SHCS & a 3/4"-16 tap. Total cost was going to be around 160 bucks of which 120 bucks was the tap. I said not today. I checked the KBC Tools catalog for a Union Butterfield (at the other end of the spectrum from your Crappy Tire or Princess Auto taps) tap. They wanted 65 bucks. You can guess what I did. Even w/ the postage, it was considerably cheaper.

    I had to back up the thread. The shop we've dealt w/ for starters I'm isnt a dealer for Kimpex stuff. I will check the next time Im in town.

    Denis, it was a 377 Safari!
  5. all in...all done

    Time to wear out the SxSs now?
  6. Via - Toronto - ptbo - Ottawa

    VIA hasnt got the funding yet from the feds. Its a boondoggle of immense proportions to save 20 minutes of time between Ottawa and Toronto. Proposed cost is set at over 4 BILLION dollars. Yes E107 would be screwed east of Havelock. The can't even get a GO train to Peterborough, I cant see this happening. A lot of local Municipalities have this idea that VIA will be stopping at Ivahoe, Kaladar etc. Dont get me going on that useless (fill in the blank MPP Leal)! He never said a word in support of Del Mastro's plan which would've made more sense & cost a lot less. All he would say is whatever Metrolinx would tell him to say. Im pretty sure the fact that Del Mastro being a CPC MP had a big part of their being no support from the provincial gov't or its 'arm length' agencies.

    Ive used that site too. About the starters, S-I-L's 377 Safari needed a new starter years ago. Bombi replacement cost was north of 300 bucks. Bro' checked @ the local starter/alternator shop & the starter was I think a Denso part used by Nissan. A reman' was considersbly less.
  8. High speed train tracks.

    We got our signals crossed about which link. LOL I saw the clip of the CP24 appearance. I wonder when they'll call Ford a child molester?
  9. High speed train tracks.

    Any links?
  10. Mobil 1 Synthetic Oil

    Google the technical data for the grade of oil you use. When I started using synthetic back in 2000, I researched the different brands. I looked for the thinnest oil @ low temps & thickest oil @ higher temps. There are SAE standards that are easily understood. Back then the Pennzoil synthetic fit MY 'standards'. A year or so ago, I checked the tech sheets and Mobil 1 was the 'best' oil to my eye. It was kind of telling that GM doesn't specify THEIR oil (I imagine the other OEMs don't either) whereas this seems to be a common occurrence in the powersports industry.
  11. Mobil 1 Synthetic Oil

    I didn't bother asking. Knowing them they screw up the order.
  12. Mobil 1 Synthetic Oil

    Well the sledders in Ptbo must've bought all the 0W40. Both stores sold out of it but shelffulls of 5W30. If anyone in the Durham Region area happens to spot a couple of jugs if 0W40 could you pick them up for me? TIA
  13. Mobil 1 Synthetic Oil

    O2, I think the issue is when people perceive that they are getting ripped off by the OEMs. Wally Mart sells OEM filters for less than the dealers do. I don't anyone in this thread is condoning 'cheapening out' on the oil & filter. I've always used brand name oils in my vehicles & AC or WIX filters. You won't find me using off brand filters & oil.
  14. Mobil 1 Synthetic Oil

    True on the thicker viscosity comment. No idea why the different oils being spec'd. When I got my 2011 Poo Ranger they initially spec'd a 2W50 oil which only they sold. Since then the spec' has changed to 5W50 which has aftermarket suppliers.
  15. Mobil 1 Synthetic Oil

    LOL I've always referred to it as Wally Mart, Wally's World sells a certain brand of sled in Bancrotch...
