Re: Lazy lifter

First off, I'm envious. I lived in Boulder for four years and I'm
resolved to move back soon. As for the lifter, I have found that mine are
very sensitive to oil viscosity. I don't want to re-start the oil thread,
so I,ll just quote Audi's recommendation. Audi recommends 20W/50 all the
way down to 10 degrees. I know for a fact that that covers pretty much
all year in Boulder. I don,t know what weight you are using, but I have
noticed a tedency for people to use thinner oils than 20W/50.
