I use Marval Mystery Oil. After every main event I remove the glow plug and run the oil through the engine on the starter box while its still warm.

Just buy a 1 litre bottle of Castrol Automatic Tranmission Fluid from Super Crap Auto or REPCO. Easy!

I use Tornado After Run Oil, but I would bet that its just ATF.

WD-40 is the best, but we cant use it with a silicone filled crankshaft.
I use serpent premium lube and i think its just fine. I think, the most
important thing is the way you apply the oil.

Why not just get an bottle afterrun vor a few bucks?

OK, for the same price you can get a liter of some kind of oil but with a small bottle of afterrun you can go on for a while.

That's exactly what I was wondering. Is there something wrong with the products that are currently made and labled as "after run oil"?

mobil 1 full synthetic has been doing great for my engines for years. every time, i pour it from the top of the piston with the heat sink and underhead removed. so far so good, no complaint.

Nothing wrong with them. All the red ones are is ATF. Available almost anywhere.

Me, I like Mobil One Synthetic.

Default Oil

I have read on here that mineral oil you can buy in the pharmacy section at wallyworld is good. I have been using it and it's also good for using on assembly.

They say ATF/Marvel can deteriorate the filled cranks. I never had a problem with it but I switched to Mobil 1 just to be sure. No problems there.
