      $35? I'm not saying that part is junk, but that price is too low to be any good. Give us your review after it's installed and if it fixes your problem.

      First thing I would recommend is to stop replacing parts because you think they are bad. This rarely ever works but seems to be the first tactic people use.

      These engines were never suppose to be race engines. 7k is enough for me. They were never designed to go past that. Every engine will fail past their design parameters, no matter how good they are....

      Yes, it's common knowledge that without oil, the engine will not last long. In discussions, it's assumed that we all know this and not really brought up. Yes, the oil is supporting the crank, but the...

      That's an oxymoron. Bosch is not known with high quality engine oil filters.

      Not knowing where you live or the outside temperatures, I think you are worrying too much.

      I look forward to the final answer. My last words of advice is to replace the engine. New or used, I believe you will be better off saving time and money.
