    Rear Main Seals

    Are there any new production seals being manufactured at this time? I'd hate to go through the work of changing the seal only to have it leak because the NOS seal I put in there is over 10 years old.

    Multi fuel Question

    Other than Diesel type fuels what other kinds of fuel can be used in these engines? Can you use a 50/50 mix of Diesel fuel and Jet oil without affecting performance or harming the engine? We discard alot of used jet oil that has less than 50 hours on it so I was thinking about cutting fuel costs.
