CAM AND LIFTER WEAR AS AFFECTED BY ENGINE OIL ZDP CONCENTRATION AND TYPE

To determine the effects of oil additives on wear, controlled tests were run using 1972-1974 model cars, unleaded gasoline, and either SE commercial products or experimental formulations. Generally, protection from excessive wear was best provided by those oils containing predominately alkyl ZDP (zinc dithiophosphate) anti-wear additive instead of aryl ZDP. /GMRL/
