    Gear Oil

    Been told about using only a specific gear oil for T90/D18. Anyone out there know of a GL4 rated oil that is not rated "extreme pressure" as well? Thanks!

    Pilot bearing R & R

    Removed the flywheel from 1959 F134 motor. Can I pound out the old pilot bearing from the inside of the flywheel, and reinstall the new one by pounding it in from the outside with a block of wood?
