Default After Run Oils

Which after run oil is the best? I heard that Hobbico after run oil doesn't really do anything for the engine, but I still buy it because it is cheap. Are there any cheaper alternative for after run oil?

Gmk is something like 5 bucks and lasts a while. The main thing is to lube the inside with a light coat of oil just to keep moister away.Allso helps clean it a little.For the cost of this stuff its worth it

It's safe to use right? A few bucks for a whole quart. I even use it when I break apart an engine and am not ready to put it back together yet to protect the parts. Just get some little sealable containers and pour some fresh MMO in it and store your engine parts in there.
My OS manual says to run some 50/50 mix of MMO/ATF (full scale automatic transmission fluid) through it after running. I tried that but it left an orange gel coating on the head I didn't like at all. Straight MMO works for me and I'm sticking with it. You can use it for other stuff around the house too. Read the bottle. Pour a little in the spark plug hole to store your mower engine or snowblower engine in the off season, etc.

Mineral oil that you get ata the drugstore works great is cheap and doesnt h harm any of the internals of the engine.I have heard Mystery oil,ATF,WD-40,can harm the seals and will deteriate the filled crank in Mod motors.

Marine fogging oil works well too. It's for winterizing boat engines. It's a spray and you can rig the spray tube to allow you to shoot it into the carb via the fuel nipple. You can get Penzoil brand stuff at Farm & Fleet or some place like that for $3-4.
