    That's great news, well done. Wish I could get my emission down that low, injectors are my next focus.

    Engine oil change every 6 to 8K, 30 min run before MOT.
    Been using this for 15 years, we have 5 diesel engines including a generator, its use in all.

    Ordered some.
    Mine looked fine in cylinders 2, 3, 4 but 1 and 5 were very sooty, thinking of sending those injectors to be tested.

    Ever decided to do one job and then suffered from the 'might as well do the XXX while i'm there" AKA Triggers Broom syndrome?
    What started as swivels is now,swiv housing, stub axles, wheel bearings, shields, CV, etc entire hubs ends on both sides, then season with Timkens and Corteco all round of course.

    Stonechipped the brake mud shields etc.

    And why the fook not eh?:cool:
