How long can these things go? Mine has almost 5,700 on it with good compression. No heavy markings on the walls.....I've been told 8 or so is possible. Anyone got any big miles on a stock non iron jug ?
Person in same group of people stated 10,to 15k under the right conditions.
But i have some doubts about that....on a plated surface? wear is wear and 10k miles is one hell of a lot of cycles. Something has got to give up, pin bushing by then at least or even way before that.
I would think most would just be tired of being slow by then and rebuild.
Never having hit the service life end. But, you never know.
