i have some very specific questions in two separate areas..
ive been reading a lot on motor oil additives and how zinc and molybdenum are anti wear items. so i read you shouldnt have more then 1800ppm of zddp or else it would start eating metals. nothing about moly though...
but how does does moly effect engine components? would it hurt to add more moly? most motor oil already has some moly in it but is more bad?
all that research got me to thinking about my transmission.. when i "rebuilt" mine, i took 2 trannys apart and used only the best parts from both to put 1 together, including syncros. but its still hard to shift fast. it would jam really quick until i clutch and shift again. the fluid i used was ford honey with snake oil additive.
this got me to thinking. does the snake oil change the coefficient of friction enough to play a role on the syncro performance? i cant seem to find enough on snake oils.
if so.. what if i added lucas oil stabilizer to the transmission to make it thicker possibly make syncros work better? or used different tranny fluid?
basically i need to shift fast... lol. any info would be appreciated
