Tried Prolong... Slick 50... neither seemed to make any difference good or bad.

Ain't that what we're talking about... oil "extends" the life of bearings and bushings?

Jous guys is nutz. Man... But funny. :rofl:

Marty,
I used the engine treatment. The oil stabilizer is heavy and is meant for rear ends and standard transmissions. They 'normally' use 80W90 wt gear lube... BUT it won't throw off... Motor won't rev high enough :laugh2:

Extenze... :roflmao: And what happenz when your other half thinks you can't shake it nomo... without it falling off? :laugh2:

I've been using Mobil 1 0W40 motor oil blended with a light touch of the Prolong motor oil treatment. It seems to work just a touch better than the Slick 7 Glidex oil for bearings when breaking in a motor. Liquid Bearings oil seems to be OK also, but it seems to be better for bushings, whereas the Mobil 1 and the Slick 7 are good for bearings and bushings, at least in my opinion.

I don't think I'd want to use Marvel oil on a bushing in a high speed motor. It makes good braid juice though, but too thin for motors.

Guys,

A scale racer here told me when he uses the S7 non-oilite type bushings in his cars he doesn't use a 3/32 axle but a #42 drill blank.

3/32" = .09375"

#42 = .0935"

He says he oils them with synth oil and nevers worries!

Don't tell anyone, cool?? ;)

In theory there is no difference between theory and practice.
In practice there is.

I'm coming in late to this party but way back in 1970ish era I used Marvel Mystery oil on braid, I had a 1969 MGB with dual SU carbs and the dampers took top cylinder lubricant which was pretty much Marvel so I always had a quart in the trunk of the "Bee". For oilites I used a mix of Marvel Mystery oil with a bit of lubriplate all cooked together, I also used to boil oilites in this mix, worked pretty good. I made the switch to ball bearings about the time Dave Fortner and I made the trip to Oakland for a race, I bought some aircraft instrument oil from Kaman Bearing and it was pretty good stuff, my ball bearing motors got stolen out of the box at that race while I pitted for one of the NorCal guys. after that I stuck pretty much to ball bearings and avionics oil.

 

MMO still brings back good memories kind of the ones brought on by Oil of Wintergreen.
