That's the key. For more than you ever wanted to read about the subject, you can hunt down an oil thread from about 2007 on www.correctcraftfan.com
. The horse was pretty well beat to death.
There was a later thread over here, too. From that, it was somewhat settled that the MC engines that would need to be worried about these things are any Fords and the pre-vortec TBI Chevies.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
