What Should Enging Break-in Oil Look Like

Recommended Posts

My 570 was sold to me as new. After trailering it home, I discovered it had 39 miles on it and the break-in oil had not been changed. The dealer gave me a bunch of mumbo jumbo about how the miles might have been put on there but I am concerned about the break-in oil. When I drained it, it was a very light milky brown color (almost like light chocolate milk made with water) and the viscosity seemed like almost zero. Is this normal?

Thanks is advance for any insights.

Yeah, it's not supposed to look that way, usually oil turns that color when the engine was swamped with water...

    • Hisun dealer support

      Stay as far away from Hisun as you can,  fit and finish nice but I bought a truck load and every single machine failed in the first 5 miles and took months to get parts. 5 out of 5 generators failed as well and they would not offer any warranty support! They set up dealers just to get rid of inventory.  Units that cannot be retailed to dealers goes to the auction house and drives the value down,  Nada wont ever put a resale value for Hisun on their website.  They do not support dealers, I finally got my last one to the auction house and the throttle cable broke on it way to the selling line! Its like throwing money away doing business with these folks... Run away and hide from Hisun as fast as you can! or just send me the cash!

    • Changed A-arm joints

      At over 3500k Miles on my trooper. My a arm joints were shot. Ordered new from joyner USA but sent them back. I felt they were low quality especially for $25 a piece. They were nylon injected but the nylon was loose inside the end. I expected more for $25 a piece.  And honestly the original heims were clearly higher quality. It concerns me that Joyner may be supplying lesser quality parts than they used to. I ended up ordering QA1 time joints from eBay for $19 apiece they are also nylon injected but higher quality. The part number is : QA1 MXMR16 Rod End (X) Endura Alloy Ht M-R 16Mm-16Mm May want to pin this in part section of this forum.

      With the new distributor and many changes in the world of Joyner It would be helpful to have a list of dependable dealers. If you agree please reply with the name, location, and telephone number of a dealer worthy of being listed on the board. Before submitting the information please to talk to your dealer to let them know what you are going to do. This should reinforce there willingness to handle our business. It would be nice if the dealer were a board member. Your personal knowledge of the dealer is important. Hopefully the dealers listed would be a full blown dealers, not one in name only. They should stock, or have ready access to parts needed, and have knowledgeable service people. You might suggest it would be nice if they would offer come incentive to have board member do business with them. If you agree please respond with your dealer information. Kinarfi will pin the list on the board. We have a great network of owners helping one another, why not good dealers? EDIT - All dealer info moved to post #2 - Kinarfi Gumball
