    Hi Paul,
    I bought and installed the engine new in 1994. Nevr have I gone over 150 hours without changing oil, for filters I just buy the NAPA gold filters. I think these filters are as good as most. For oil I use Delvac 15-40. Fuel is filtered through Racor 2010 one micron. When running I keep it at 1800 max and never let it idle much as to idle a diesel unloaded is hard on it. The exhaust is a dry exhaust system so it easy to see if it smokes when running and Iím honest when I tell you it burns clean. One thing you can do that will not hurt your engine or injectors is next time you change your fuel filters fill the filters with ATF fluid. Then start and run engine as normal. This fluid will in no way harm anything the detergents will clean injectors tips. A bad injection spray pattern can wash the cylinder wall and cause premature wear

    Thanks for that. Been laid up with a bung knee for the last week or so.
    I will have a parts list soon and I'll get you to price it up for me, can you also get the thin seals for rocker head etc ?
