Liquid filled capsule

The compass liquid used by Suunto is specially formulated to provide damping over a large temperature range while preventing the needle from sticking. The liquid filled capsules are hermetically sealed to protect against corrosion and moisture and provide consistent damping even under water.

If you ever need to refill or top off the fluid in your Ritchie compass, the manufacturer recommends Isopar L, an odorless, colorless, refined synthetic fluid. Its low viscosity promotes quick swinging.
Use only fresh water and mild soap for cleaning. Clean your compass regularly. To clean optics, unscrew optics knob until it comes completely out. Rinse interior cavity with water.

This box showcases three families of blends that can be made from Scotland`s two styles of spirit, malt whisky and grain whisky.
Mixture of distilled water and ethyl alcohol , Two part of distilled water and one parts of ethyl alcohol providing a fluid with low viscosity and small coefficient of expansion.
Marine oil is formulated and designed for the harshest saltwater environment. Automotive oils don`t operate in the constantly corrosive environment that boats do, so marine oils have much higher levels of anti-corrosive additives in them.
Protection against rust and corrosion is the primary reason to use marine motor oil in your boat engine. Despite what most people might naturally assume, motor oils have no natural ability to protect against rust or corrosion.
The average battery life for the Suunto Core is 12-18 months depending on usage.
May be cleaned with bleach following the proper ratio of 80% water : 20% bleach.
It`s a difficult question to answer, and the truth is that both Suunto and Garmin make really, really good smart watches with GPS capabilities. Both companies make models that outperform the Apple Watch for outdoor use, in my opinion.
For example, when you put water in the oil based compass, it will rust the magnets and discolor the card in the magnet. There is also a risk of adding too much water to the alcohol-water based compass, causing the device contents to freeze in certain temperatures.
Everclear. Proof: 190 (95% alcohol). Made in: United StatesThe first 190-proof alcohol ever to be bottled for consumers, Everclear spawned a `90s rock band and many a bad idea—it`s a favorite among young drinkers because it`s nearly tasteless.
Good compasses have a fluid-filled housing; the fluid dampens the motion of the needle, so that you can use the compass without holding it perfectly still. Avoid inexpensive compasses that do not have fluid-filled housings.
This chamber is called the compass housing and it is filled with liquid. The liquid allows the red north-facing needle to rotate freely but also limits oscillations, which keeps it steady as it points towards magnetic north. This makes your readings more accurate.
Marine gasoil and distillate marine diesel oil (MDO) are manufactured from kero, light, and heavy gasoil fractions. This intermediate fuel oil (IFO) grade is obtained by blending the atmospheric residue fraction (typical viscosity of about 800 mm²/s at 50°C) with a gasoil fraction.
Yes. There is no danger mixing synthetic and conventional motor oil. However, conventional oil will detract from the superior performance of synthetic oil and reduce its benefits.
Marine engine oils comprise a series of lubricants used to maintain the proper function of low-speed and medium-speed marine engines, which are mainly employed in larger ships.
Marine and automotive engine oils are NOT interchangeable, why? The two primary reasons for this: water and wear. Consider that corrosion caused by water is a primary concern for marine engines.
Frequent oil changes ward off breakdowns and extend the life of your boat engine(s) by thousands of hours. Engine manufacturers typically recommend an oil change every 100 hours, and at least once a year.
The presence of oil and its distribution is absolutely crucial to an engines continued operation. Engines can work without oil, but the effect is so damaging they are only capable of running for less than 30 minutes until failing – and in most cases, it`s a lot quicker than that.
Use a motor oil specifically formulated for the rigors of the marine environment, like Yamalube® 4M for 4-stroke outboards, and Yamalube® 2M for two-stroke outboards. Marine engine oils are so different in their requirements that special levels of certification exist: FC-W® (4 stroke) and TC-W3® (2 stroke).

I am trying to change the transmission oil on a 4WD stiga XK4 160 HD for the first time.
Draining went well. I have filled the reservoir but the oil is not going into the transmission. The rear clutch release lever is pulled out. the front clutch release lever can be pulled out by hand but doesn’t want to stay out. With the engine running the oil in the reservoir remains perfectly still, no bubbles.
What am I omitting to do? cheers allan
ANSWER : Checking transmission oil level

Check the oil level every time before using to ensure it is correct. The machine should be
standing on level ground.
Read off the oil level in the reservoir (9:R). It should be between the MAX and MIN marks. If necessary, top up with more oil.Type of oil:4WD – Synthetic oil 5W-50HST – SAE 10W-30 (20W-50)Draining the transmission oil1. Run the machine at variable speeds for 10-20 minutes to heat up the transmission oil.2. Position the machine completely horizontally.3. Pull out both disengagement levers.4. Place one container under the rear axle and one under the front axle.5. Open the oil reservoir by removing the cover. Only a 3/8″ square drive may be used for the oil plug. Other tools will damage the plug.6. Remove the oil plug from the rear axle. Clean the hole and use a 3/8″ square drive.7. Remove 2 drain plugs from the front axle. Use a 12 mm socket. Allow the oil in the front axle and pipes to run out.8. Check that the gaskets on the drain plugs of the front axle are intact. Reinstall the plugs. Tightening torque: 15-17 Nm. The oil plug will be damaged if it is tightened more to than 5 Nm.9. Check that the gasket on the oil plug of the rear axle is intact. Reinstall in the rearaxle. Tighten the oil plug to 5 Nm.10.Draw out the oil from the deeper section of the reservoir using an oil extractor.11.Dispose of the oil according to local regulations.Filling the transmission with oilThe engine must never be run when the rear clutch release lever is pushed in and the front clutch release lever is pulled out. This will damage the front axle seals.1.Fill the oil reservoir with the new oil. If the engine is run indoors, exhaust extraction equipment must be connected to the engine’s exhaust pipe.2. Check that the rear axle’s clutch release lever is pulled out.3. Start the engine. When the engine is started, the front axle’s clutch release lever slides inwardsautomatically.4. Pull out the front axle’s clutch release lever. NOTE! The oil is drawn into the system very quickly. The reservoir must always be topped up. Air must never be drawn in.5. Set the accelerator pedal to the forward position by blocking it using a wooden wedge. Fill the oil reservoir by hand using new oil.6. Run in the forward position for one minute.7. Move the wooden wedge and set the accelerator pedal to the reverse position. Continue fillingwith oil.8. Run in reverse mode for one minute.9. Change driving direction once every minute as above and continue filling with oil until the bubbling in the reservoir stops.10.Switch off the engine, install the oil reservoir cover and close the engine cover.11.Test drive for several minutes and adjust the oil level in the reservoir.

Does the John Deere series 100 lawn tractor have some sort of safety feature that shuts the engine off if it gets dangerously low on oil? I was cutting grass this morning and the engine sputtered and quit. I got off the tractor and noticed that the oil drain line plug was open and dripping oil. Have I ruined my engine or can I refill it with oil and continue on?
ANSWER : Not sure on this specific mower, but oil is usually there to lubricate and keep the temp down. When theres none in it, it gets hot and melts the pistons. Sounds bad to me

My polaris (Sportsman 700 2002) consumes about 1 litre of oil for every 200 miles. I replace the oil dipstick tube going into the engine,, because ther was a crack at the base, but it wasn’t the only problem obviously. The thing is, that normally when an engine burns oil, you can see smoke in the eshast fumes, but there doen’t seem to be any smoke. everything else goes fine. What’s the next step, because I live in Kuujjuaq situated in the Nunavik(Tip of norhern Québec) and ther are no qualified mehanics in this town, so I need some to guide me to the next step…
ANSWER : I had that problem some time ago and could not find any leak or there was no smoke. What we found was when I put the car up on the hoist there was a leak under neath the engine. Not enough to run out but when the car was driven it would throw the oil out underneath the car. I forget what one but I think the oil drain gasket was leaking. just enough leak to make the oil disappear. Put it on the hoist and see if your engine area is wet with oil.and pin point the area.
Hope this helps

I want to change the oil in my yamaha big bear atv, early 90s. what type of oil do I need to use and is there anything else that goes along with the oil change-?filter
ANSWER : HELLO; Yes you will need a filter located lower left side behind the peg ,you’ll see a cover thats about an inch and a half wide with three allen head bolts, pull out the filter and when you replace it make sure the hole is towards the engine. Now about oil there are several ideas on this so heres my ( 2 cents ) I repair quads and have for several years,you have a quad that has a wet clutch if it is an older one and semi automatic so you don’t want to use syn. oil as this will wear out your clutch sooner, I would recomend, yamalube,it will cost up to $5.00 a qt. but you only need two and a quarter qts. to fill your quad. GOOD LUCK, and remember you must be fast, because I was haulin *** when I passed you!
