Hey there my fellow Vantage owner. Got a question for ya, Do you take your machine in for those 1,000 hour check-ups. Do you got a Perkins? I am getting some oil residue on the top of my block, under the air filter. Didn't know if yours did the same. Its not bad, just stays some what wet all the time, never dries up anyway. Uses about a quart of oil every 500 hours. Thanks
