    Glad to see we have the same reasoning.....Platinum, it just HAS to be better than Gold!

    I picked the Platinum this year.

        • Mike or others.....now my boat will be stored in Idaho, there is more moisture in the air throughout the winter than Colorado. I called the local MC shop and they said they typically Fog the engines. So....how do I fog my LT1? I've never done it before.

          And on another note....comparing priced at Napa from last year, noticed everything went up in price! $20 more overall....Dang!

          • ^SM, as mikeg205 suggests above, most effective fogging access is via your spark plug openings. Pull plug, spray fogging oil into each opening, bump transmission over once or twice (do not start engine). Many will simply spray fogging oil into the throttle body if so equipped but IME if you're gonna fully fog the block may as well do so in each cylinder.

            Tip: most fogging oils come with a small tube to direct the aerosol into smaller openings - securely tape any plastic tubing to the aerosol can so it cannot detach by mistake and drop into your engine block.

              Great, thanks Moose! I'll give her a shot this weekend.

              • Sta-bil's fogging explanation and process below is a decent reference point. I also tend to neglect my sparkplugs but it's a good time to gap them or replace if needed.

                • Part #'s

                  I don't know if they are all the same, but for our 1997 ProStar 205 with the LT-1 I have some part #'s that may be useful.
                  Spark plugs (8) Autolite #- APP103
                  2 in-line fuel filters (1 @ tank, 1 @ motor) WIX #- 33481
                  K&N Air filter/ Flame Arrestor- K & N #- 59-5020

                  I forgot to get the belt #, but I will get it and add it as soon as I get it. BTW, this is my first post on MC TeamTalk!!

                      Put antifreeze through it. It won't hurt anything.

                          • Oil Filter??

                            I hope someone is still reading this board.

                            MC PS190 1995

                            1610 Hours. Middle Maine, so 3 months in the water, tops, each season.

                            I have always used Mobil-One oil and filters. The oil change is always the end of the season.

                            The M1 oil filter I have used for years is not there anymore, it is now M1-XXX A. So, I did a little research about filters, and the only information I can find is for cars, like Corvettes, of that year. But, that shows a different filter from what I have been using.

                            So, simple question: does anyone have a number for the right M1 filter for the 1995 LT1?

                            Obviously, the filter I have used for many, many years must be OK, but my curiosity has been piqued. Any suggestions?

                            • Go with the Napa Platinum 41060 filter for synthetic. Same filter as a Wix. This is what I use in my 94' LT1.

                              On sale for $8.99 right now.
