    There's air in there and if it's been sat for a while with temperature fluctuations , condensation occurs . I always feel it benefits from a bit of a warm up .

    Need thought of condensation within the engine. A warm up first then drain out the oil. Thanks

    I have found that replacing the drain plug before refilling with 35 worth of oil is a good idea.
    I only have one viceI lie.

    Er, yes.
    We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box.

    I buy oil in bulk (20lt. drums) from Opie Oils - their sales guy posts on a number of forums (including SWB) as “Oilman” to advise of any special offers they have and as stated previously I do the same and decant into 5lt containers to administer it. An old empty 20lt drum is useful for collecting old oil and periodically taking it to the tip for recycling.

    Sure do - get someone else to test ride it when you've done it.

    Thanks for the pointer , I'll check SWB . I did see Opie Oils sell Silkolene through Amazon but it was as pricey as buying it in 4L packs

    Mention SWB to get a discount. He can be pricey though. Will give advice willingly and knowledgeably.

    Only thing that I've bought from there was 3 plugs.
