Product description

This book gives classic car owners the information necessary to make an appropriate and safe choice of lubricants from the vast and sometimes overwhelming range available today.

If you own a classic car, you face the problem of choosing the appropriate lubricants to use in its engine, gear box, final drive and chassis. The original owner’s handbook, if you have one, is probably of limited use. The lubricants that it lists are probably no longer available, or not of the original performance or specification level. Even if you have some good information, you still have problems: are modern oils suitable? If yes, which ones? (Even within a single brand there may be five or six different oils sold for apparently the same purpose.) If no, then why not? What characteristics are unsuitable, and where do you turn to obtain an appropriate oil?
This book gives all owners the information that will allow them to understand the lubrication needs of their cars, and to relate those needs to modern lubricants. You will be able to make correct and safe choices, or to seek out appropriate specialised lubricants if necessary, using step-by-step instructions. Answers are also given to many of the most commonly-asked questions about suitable oils for classic cars.
