THE SLIPPERY STUFF

October 30, 2020

One requirement that all cars and bikes have in common is that for lubrication. Whether it be engine, motor, transmission, hubs, or some tiny dangly bit that touches the nadger arm whenever the doodah lever is pulled.

Regarding motor vehicles generally, the faster it spins, the quicker it goes and the more we like it, whatever ‘it’ might be.
So how do we know which lubricant to use where?

The answer isn’t simple and getting it wrong can have catastrophic consequences, but that doesn’t mean that we have to adhere to the exact penned script from the ancient driver’s handbook, as often the writers of such tomes would have been recommending the best available lubricants of the time. Nowadays, in many cases, there are superior lubricants available for our beloved machines.

That is not to say that an off the shelf synthetic multigrade 5w/30 oil should be used to replace a summer mono-grade. But it does mean that there are now multigrade oils formulated especially for classic and vintage engines originally specified with mono-grades....

There you are; you’re way down a worm hole. Here’s hoping that the walls are well greased.
