    Hi Melmount,

    I hope all is well. I came across one of your old posts and wanted to ask you about Shell Rotella ELC Nitrate-Free. I accidentally came across a bill that had work done my 2006 f350 PSD 6.0, including a flush and change to Rotella ELC. I specifically wrote a list and asked for Cat-1 rated Rotella but on my receipt I just noticed it says, "PARTS:COOLANTROTELLA ELC NF CONCENTATE."

    A few questions. I am not 100% they actually used NF and may have just selected it randomly while building a receipt list, they did that on my differential (correct stuff but wrongly listed.) (1) If it is Rotella ELC NF is that okay? It is supposed to be the best but is not "Cat-1?" (2) Could I tell be the color, it seems redish to me? and (3) if it is NF can I add something to it so I can run it for a while safely?

    Thank you, its just hard to get good info and this stuff came out a few years ago so not many threads on it.

    it worked fine,. You need spacers on the front and not the back(2 inch). The wheels will be fine. You will need to fix the holes in the bedside from removing the fenders. I have not done that yet.

    Hello, what is your long term opinion of using the 05 wheels to run SRW on your dually?
    What do you figure it would cost to follow your conversion method today?
    Do I understand you pulled off the fenders and covered with flares for reversable solution?

    I am looking to buy a great used truck 2002 but don't need the duals.
    thank you
