Default After run oil/wd40

Right, looking for a good after run oil that protects my engine, and wont let it rust, as my tornado after run, has let both my engines rust when used correctly....read a lot here about marvel mystery oil for air tools, or wd40 for dispelling water and good coating, but can't really get it here in the uk, can at a push...but i was wondering if this would work ok and not wreck plugs or damage engines....its like wd40 in the sense it disspells water, and is a nice and oily, its a clear thin liqued and is called "duck oil" this is the spec,


Content 'Duck Oil'
Multi-purpose service spray.

LUBRICATES
Highly developed lubricating oil which improves the efficiency of moving parts and dramatically reduces friction.
PENETRATES Low viscosity formulation penetrates tight tolerances to release seized components.
DISPLACES Contains special additives which rapidly displace water from metals and electrical circuits, helping to ensure their efficient operation; ideal for "damp starts".

INHIBITS CORROSION
Contains corrosion inhibitors which form a protective film on metal surfaces.

SILICONE FREE
Contect does not contain silicone and can be removed quickly and easily from surfaces by means of solvent or detergent, making it ideally suited for use in paint spray shops.
CLEANS Light solvent action will help remove oil, grease and grime.

COMPATIBLE
Compatible with a wide range of surfaces, including plastics, glass, paints, metal and most rubbers.
CONVENIENT Available in a wide range of pack sizes to meet various user requirements.
DESCRIPTION Hazy brown liquid of low viscosity.
COMPOSITION

A blend of aliphatic hydrocarbon solvent, light mineral oil, corrosion inhibitors and water displacing additives.

VISCOSITY


Approximately 3.0 CentiPoise at 250C.

FLASH POINT


610C typical (Abel Closed Cup).

STORAGE


Store in original sealed container and protect from extremes of temperature.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE


Spray or immerse components and allow to dry.




Do you reckon its safe to use, as its an alternatice to wd40?

just use some synthetic Mobil 1, 5w30 oil. It's cheap and protects as well as all these other "snake oils". You get a quart of it for less than 100ml of any of the other "snake oils". MMO is very good as well, but if you can't get it I'd go with the synthetic Mobil 1.

Do not use WD40. It is not safe for cranks with epoxied ramps in them.

cdelong beat me to it but Mobil1 synthetic oil is all you need .
Couple of drops in the glow plug hole and a few drops in the carb and swing over on starter box till next use.
Been using it from last year after reading a post about it and it works.
No signs of rust or scratchy bearings.
WD40 is great for the drivetrain and plastics but not for the filled cranks that some engines come with.

Yeah i read that about cranks, but mines ok (mega ZX12...no putty) More concerned about keeping it rust free, when i bought the engine, no corossion looked fine, started it on bench to fire up, had it run for a min or two....shut it off, drained fuel from carb by trying to restart a few times, put afterun in carb and plug and took exhaust off and put a few in the exhaust port ( it was only bolted to empty chassis, so easily done.

Turned it over a few times on box, and thought that was a good job?! came back off holiday a week later, stripped it all apart properly to clean and found a rusty crank counter weight! Huh!

And also my picco engine has some rust specs and looks grubby, and treated that the same with regards to after run, so it must be my oil?

Just thought that duck oil would be good as it dispels water, as that must have caused the rust...and i've got bottles of duck oil in my garage from my dads work, think it will harm? or shal i get some synthetic mobil?

So, this works well with the silicone filled crankshafts?

I guess you could use some Castrol Edge synthetic oil as well or any high end brand of synthetic motor oil around the 5w30 or 0w30 range ,basically thinner oil.Remember you only need a few drops and have to tun over engine for it to coat the internals.

When storing motors, I use Slick 50 or Breakfree gun lube. They are both like Mobile 1 but with a teflon additive. I have have been using Slick 50 and Breakfree to store motors for years. Any good synthetic oil will work well. I refuse to use WD40 as a after run oil. The objective is to lubricate and keep moisture out.

That Duck oil is more of a solvent and cleaner than a lube.

Dont see why it wont ,any automotive synthetic oil thats a fairly thin consistancy would work well although id go with 5w or 0w.Ive heard good things about Breakfree too but the motor oil is more value for money.
