Terry, At the risk of causing all hell to break loose here again, Amsoil is a good product. It is expensive, but I feel the benefits outway the costs. I have used this in an F250 International Navistar for 7 years now. Changed the oil once. This is because I use a special system that cleans the oil to under one micron. I would immagine that this could be addapted to your JD 4400, as long as you have place for the filter. I use oil analysis along with this too. Cold starts are not dry starts with this oil, and if you live where it's been very cold lately, she'll turn over much more easily ta boot.And my tractor has it in all the sumps too As long as the SAE grade and API rating are correct, this oil is guaranteed not to screw up your motor, as long as it was sound to begin with. There are gonna be some who tell ya here that it ain't worth it to use this, or any synthetic, but if your interested already, it can't hurt. There are some synthetics which I would not use, but this one has worked for me very nicely. If you want more info, email me direct and I would be happy to try to help. I just don't want a big hullabalue like the last time I answered one of these threads like this. There is another thread, extremely long, under fuel and lub, I think the name was synthetic vs petro and filter quality, unless the webmaster changed it again. Lots of opinions there, worth the read, and some good laughs, that's if they were not all censored, anyway. Hope I helped. Bill

Terry,
I have experience "USING" about 6 different synthetic oils. For various reasons I feel AMSOIL provides the most bang for the buck. I also feel its the Least expensive to use over the life of the product, although it generally carries a bit higher purchase price than some. A few synthetic brands I've used, I could not find or see even 1 benefit to its higher price tag over a good quality petro product. My next oil change in my 98' Cummins will use the series 3000 5-30, so I cannot personally comment on it performance charactoristics. But I do know a few who have and rave about it. To be honest...it should be wonderful...Its even more expensive than Synthetic 15-40. If you want additional info, feel free to e-mail me directly, because this will be my only post under this thread.
Otherwise, your question will end up similar to a presidential debate over a $315 toilet seat.

Terry,
Since you appear interested, I'm including a link you may find interesting to read. Obviously it has potential for Bias, due to the fact that many lines are stated by AMSOIL. Therefore, take it as you wish.

Where does someone go to buy AMSOIL? I understand it is not sold in stores. Is that true? After reading all of the threads about synthetic oils on this forum and on others, I'm ready to try it. If someone can help me, please send me an e-mail. Thanks in advance.

RCH, you could've used a stopwatch. (You talked me into it.) Ed, it depends on the store. Several of the NAPA stores in my area carry it. But a number of dealers I know sell it for less. Some of them (like me) even sell it at cost. BTW, RCH, what did you expect me to say? ;>)

Hi guys. I received several e-mails recommending what AMSOIL products to use for my tractor and other vehicles, and instructions on how to purchase it. When they are due their next oil changes, I plan to make the switch. I've never used synthetics before, and will share with you my experiences afterwards. Thanks to all that took the time to send me the info I was looking for. I really appreciate it!

I could not help see the posts on Amzoil, I have used this oil for 15 years in boats, tractors, aircraft, snowmobiles, race cars, differentials, transmissions, aircommpressors, motorcycles and boats and it is good oil. One thing you must remember is to not put it in for 50-100 hours or 3-5K on a automobile. It is so slippery that the rings will not seat in. When I have 100hrs on my 4200 JD it will get Amzoil. The thing I like about it is the cold cranking of an engine up here where it gets to -40 below, they start like it was 60 above, and even in the hydrostatic, they do not get stiff. And as far as automatic trans and engine will take 500 degree more heat without breaking down. gary
