    Surely someone there markets this or a similar product.

    I found something similar @ TSC. . It from STP, it's an oil additive with Zinc ( ZDDP. ) in it to add to your oil .

    Kinda pointless, I mean we are only talking 2 litres here, I've been using 0-40 Rottella in the winter and 10-40 Grand Prix Castrol motorcycle oil in the summer, coupled with a PH2835 Perkins type full flow filter on the Kholers.

    Cruizer, If I'm not mistaken you have said on here many times to use Quaker State 5W 50 " Motor Oil ". Am I Incorrect ? Where did this " Motorcycle Oil come from ? I've got " Less " than 800hrs. on my welder.

    Also, since I bought my Lincoln Ranger 8, with 55Hrs. on it, I've Only used Castrol Synthetic motor oil , can I start to use Quaker State 5W 50 conventional oil or should I use Motorcycle Oil ?

    Lack of compression, thus no torque on the heavier loads. Likely culprit initially was the incorrect oil. Probably used automotive oil not air cooled motorcycle oil. Now the cam lobes are likely rounded off. You need the Zinc And Phousphous to lube the cam and crank, not found in automotive oil

    I copied this from the Jegs catalog. Also available from Summit & many other performance places. Like I said I order it on ebay, Here is the link for where I get it. I use straight 30w. Works well for anything with flat tappet cams. Most older vehicles need a high level of zddp.

    Brad Penn ''Penn-Grade 1'' High Performance Oil


    Product images may differ from actual product appearance.
    Outstanding Anti-Wear Protection for Muscle Cars, Classic Cars, Race Cars and Trucks!

    Brad Penn ''Penn-Grade 1'' High Performance Oils are composed using unique base cut "Green Oil" stocks from Bradford, Pennsylvania with select additives to meet the stringent lubrication demands of highly stressed street and racing engines. The benefits of this special formulation are minimized wear, excellent shock load and high-temperature protection for bearings, rings, and pistons. Brad Penn ''Penn-Grade 1'' High Performance Oils have also been tested by many premier camshaft suppliers. The results of the testing have proven that this oil reduces internal friction for increased horsepower while maintaining outstanding lubricating protection for flat tappet and roller cams even under extreme conditions. The additive package in Brad Penn ''Penn-Grade 1'' High Performance Oils feature increased levels of ZDDP (zinc dialkyldithiophosphate) that provide excellent anti-wear protection. Anti-foam agents are employed to reduce foaming and air entrainment produced from crankcase windage. This oil also uses highly effective detergents, anti-oxidants and dispersants to offer thermal and oxidative breakdown protection by reducing varnish and deposit formation.

    Features:
    • Formulated with Concentrated Zinc Dialkyl Dithio Phosphate (ZDDP)
    • Exceptional Film Strength and Durability
    • "The Green Oil" Preferred by Legendary Engine Builders
    • Refined and Made in the USA
