Honestly has any one checked the ratio before even getting bent out of shape-if your running in the average of 60-1 to 80-1 i wouldnt even touch the damn thing-i own two f5s and all of us f5 owners where complaining that our sleds where using to much oil!!!!!!!!!One f5 was at 25-1 now i adjusted the oil pump and its at 65-1-the other is at 45-1 and still have to adjust-If your an f7 owner and your ratio is at 85-1 to say 120-1 yes i would be pissed and be all over cats ass-personally i would tell them to take their gift certificate and!!!!!!But on the other hand if you have been keeping track and it falls in the correct range,dont worry about it,hang on tight and go kick some ass-Whats going to happen if you shorten it up and all of a sudden its using to much oil like us f5 owners????To me its almost a no win situation until cat gets these damn things addressed for 04-by that time it might be to late-but remember if your in that 60-1 to 80-1 ratio DONT SWEAT IT hell if your in the 40-1 to 50-1 ratio your doing even better if you can live with the oil usage-scott-bottom line check your oil ratio and go from there!!!!!!!!!!!
My oil pump rod had at least 6 turns of threads showing.. Even after I increased flow 2 turns there are at least 4 turns left. My oil ratio was 59:1 today. If I would bottom the threads it would be one rich bitch for sure! No way do I want that. Mine stays where it is, no need for more oil than that.Originally posted by bee1971@Feb 9 2003, 05:07 PM
Thanx rob-and after reading gls response this morning he says some f7s you can turn the rod 1 turn and some up to 6 turns-so where does that put most f7s,probably in the middle-so this problem might effect ????I guess if your really concerned after checking your oil ratio,pull the exhaust y pipe off and check your pistons,that should tell you everthing you need to know,or better yet after dealer adjusts your oil pump if needed have them check your pistons and cylinders for free-its called piece of mind-scott
