High Zinc Content Motor Oil
˄ ˅

Details

  • 2000 PPM Zinc For Maximum Camshaft Protection 
  • Formulated With  A Unique Blend Of Conventional Base Oils And Performance Additives
  • Enhanced Detergent And Dispersant Levels
  • Reduces Sludge Buildup  Left Behind  From Years Of Using Inferior Oils 
  • Viscosity Matches That Which Vintage Engines Were Designed To Expect
  • Not For Vehicles With Catalytic Converters

 

The extent of the damage done by using modern oils in vintage engines is the subject of debate, but there is no argument that it has much lower zinc content than what they were designed for.  The oil industry lowered zinc content to help lower harmful emissions, and newer engines are built with that in mind.  The older ones however seem to experience excessive wear in the valve train area. Pushrods, and the contact surface between lifters and camshafts take the worst beating.  Overhead cam engines also wear more where the cam contacts the tappet or valve tip.  Using this Vintage Car Motor Oil® from Surf City Garage gives you a full 2000 parts per million of zinc protection.  It is formulated with a unique blend of conventional base oils and performance additives to help prevent and even correct minor oil leaks, has enhanced detergent and dispersant levels to protect from rust and corrosion that can occur during prolonged storage, and has been seen to reduce sludge buildup left behind from years of using inferior oils.  It comes in three viscosities:  10W-40, 20W-50, and SAE30.  Unlike other options, this is conventional oil in weights most collector vehicle engines were designed to use.  You can purchase these from us by the quart, or in a case of six.  The shelf life on this oil is very long so you can stock up and take care of your pride and joy for years to come.
