Audio equipment lol forgot about that one. Back in the late 90's I'd have been drawn into that debate. Now I've lost touch and hearing

At least we all agree my transmission needs help & apparently so do I , so there's a start

Lucas will quiet you as well.... :boozer:

No I haven't watched the video where Lucas foams.

 Honestly the last 30 days I've watched, read  and looked into more information about lubrication products than ever before in my life. The one thing I've learned for sure is there's to many opinions on the topic to know who's correct & everyone is an expert in their own right. It seems there's also as much defense of one's personal beliefs on oils & lubrication products as there is political & religious topics

So I'll likely do what I've done with the last two topics , test things myself, study as unbiased as possible & use logic with my own reasoning to form my own beliefs. I'll undoubtedly get some things wrong and adapt my view with time & experience.

Thank you all for your opinions and information .

Very well stated!  :beerchug:

do you have a problem with me?   because I am getting quite fed up with your smart ass comments.   If you were not trying to piss me off you might have noticed I directly replied to a comment YOU MADE.
I have seen you come into numerous threads right behind me and word your remarks different but say the exact same thing as I have to try and contradict what I have said and I am getting fed up fast.   

What?

You said… “oil that thick might actually do more harm than good”

I said.... “I don't believe you can damage the gears or bearings by running heavier gear oil unless you’re
running your truck in sub-zero temperatures."

The Amsoil viscosity is too heavy.”

I agreed with you.

Then you said…. “maybe because the thick THICK viscosity may not circulate into the bearing and cause it to over heat because it was in effect starved of oil?”

Then you said…. “What??   why is that Amsoil too heavy??    I can't wait to hear this.  ”


Then I said… “250 lbs. of gear lube is a LOT of weight!!”  :gap:

THAT IS INTENDED TO BE A FUNNY!

Then I said… “The 250w gear oil is OK, but the reason I suggested a lower viscosity is because you have noise, which you have not been able to fully identify the source.  If you go too thick, at cold ambient temperatures, the synchros and other more critical components inside the tranny will not be messing and causing intermittent grinding.

AGAIN, AGREEING WITH YOUR COMMENTS!

Why would that piss you off??  :dunno:

The thicker oil doesn't wash off the sycros as well, especially when cold.  It can make shifting a PITA.  im running a delo semi syn in mine and when its shitty cold out, the first half dozen shifts aren't smooth.  ;)

so... Oil will not fix anything but running a very heavy oil can keep oil from getting to all sections and nooks and tight spots. With that said we can get you taken care of with a rebuild kit (if you change your mind and want to take that on) or with a rebuilt unit when you are ready for that. This was an interesting topic 
im not your friend, guy

You can go through life being scared of the possible, or you can have a little fun and tease the inevitable.

Give a man venison, he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to hunt Blacktail, he'll be frustrated for life!

There's just been another complaint on the forum about them not answering.  It was an attempt a humor...

Ahhh, touché.  I never laugh, just ask anybody who knows me.  I have barely ever called them but have always got through.

You guys do a great job and I have always been happy with your customer service.  I figure if you're busy that mean longevity for the business and more opportunity for product development.

It was intended as an inside joke given a very recent complaint that follows the somewhat normal pattern of someone signing up for the forum with their only intent to be a complaint resulting in a bit of a flaming.  We got your back!

I also have had great customer service and products from Marlin. I’ve said many times, if it weren’t for Marlin I would not have enjoyed wheeling my 85 shortbed for 10 years.

However….. when it comes a profit oriented sales-driven company, there are only two ways to increase profit – increase revenue (sales) or reduce costs (overhead).

There are 3 things that are absolutely key to successful business development….

Customer Service

Customer Service

and Customer Service
