  2. another oil question

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I did a search for oil weights, and I found a few references to 20 w 50 and 10w40 oil for 29 spider engines. I went to several autoparts, as well as searching online, and when it comes to synthic oils, there is only high mileage in 10-40, and nothing like 20-50. my engine is rebuild, and has a...

    been driving a bit, after timing chain blown rebuild. getting ready to do second oil change before the cold weather. i finally have this thing running OK. i have been using syn oil, and as i don't put many miles, i guess it is expensive per mile. anyway, not very interesting.
  5. dumb question but I will ask anyway

    Engine Repair, Diagnostics & Rebuilding
    my 2L jumped timing, even though it is a chain. a costly thing. i guess it was the tensioner, i would still rather have the chain. i would feel better, none the less.

  12. skipped timing chain damage

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    the engine was idling, just went thump, and stopped, would not start. i am hoping for the best, but i am only a minor when it comes to anything like this....
  13. skipped timing chain damage

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    i was sitting at a light, and it stopped. i had to have it towed, and the mechanic said it was the timing chain. but i have no tgotten any other info as yet, and i was hoping to be a little more equipt, with what is possible. i was told some engines have valve trouble when this happens, i do...

  19. tin foil in oil filler

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    that is a thought, perhaps if i drain the oil, and pull the filter, it may be there. i wouldn't want to block the oil filter.
  20. tin foil in oil filler

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    this doesn't have foam, it is just foil, i have one from another bottle, my fear, is it would go someplace and cover a spot, and cause a lack of oil flow..it is so thin, that if it went into the chain, it would just get chewed up....
