wait...what?I still use Childs & Albert AO-108. I had plenty when they closed up.
When I run out, I'll switch to Total Seal AL8 Assembly Lube, but 10W 30 or 10W 40 mineral oil would work fine, although I prefer something thin enough to allow increased wear prior to startup.
Marvel Mystery oil is good too.
im just repeating what i've been told here and what seems to work. the key is lots of zinc which is why synthetic oil is bad.I may be incorrect here.... But I was informed that if you use 10/30 or 10/40 on the rings it increases the chance of coking up the rings and you're better off using a thinner oil on the rings to promote quicker break in... But like I said I may be incorrect...
I use it also ...though I coated the pistons rings n bores with it n 15/30 rotella in the crankcase....then mix the 2 stroke with the gas in the tank...say 4 pints to 10 gal of real premium gas....n go for a drive after it hits operating temp....Engine n trans are from a 84 GT350 Turbo 2.3 in a 93 LX.....to each their own thodepends on the engine im building, but two stroke oil is somethin ive use a lot to do this with believe it or not, and im not talking about smearing it in the bores, im talking about crank case filled.
