Thanks Andy. I use the Helix in my wife's Micra, and I cannot complain about the oil. Maybe just stick to that then.

Re: Noisy lifter on '93 4Y

Thanks Barend, will keep that in mind. Does anyone have any experience with Megatron Oils? My daughter works for a company who only uses Megatron and Ultron oils in their Machines. The specific oil I am looking at is an API 15W40 CI-4/SL. CI-4 is an indicator that it is for use in Diesel engines, bu...

Thanks Dawie :thumbup: . The lifters are still available at R 45 each, excluding courier cost from Durban to Jhb.

Re: Noisy lifter on '93 4Y

Sorry Andy, didn't see the post here. As I said the engine has 478 000 km on the clock. I managed to find Bretton's post on the Chev lifters which are an identocal spec to the 4Y lifters. Does anyone have an idea which Chev lifters are used. The part number supplied (VL93) seems to be discontinued. ...

Re: New Wheel recommendations needed!

Hi Simon, Welcome to the forum. For me the 30x9.5R15 (245/75/15) works best. I had a set of BF A/T's on my bakkie. I recently changed to 31x10.5R15 (265/70/15)Highway tread, and, although people said they are not supposed to catch on full turn lock, mine does. However, the 31" does look better on th...
