molybdenum question

Has anyone used the molybdenum powder oil additive to quiet noisy rod bearings or reduce wear such as this item
http://www.superfrictionfighter.com/index.html

insome ways it makes sense to me since it wouldnt change oil viscosity unlike the liquid additives.

opinions????

Thanks

Interesting stuff... Moly is great stuff, and there is one other additive that is good too - but I can't remember what it is right now.

That is a tempting product there...

Isn't that just like all the old stuff like Slick 50 and Duralube?

It was my understanding that those lubricants aren't that - I think they are PTFE - Teflon...

guess I should read...lol

"Q. What is the difference between Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2) and Teflon (PTFE) in terms of Solid Lubricants? A. Both materials are very slippery. Molybdenum Disulfide, or Moly, is a naturally occurring inert mineralization that will sustain loads in excess of 400,000 psi, while PTFE, a manufactured chemical, can only sustain loads in the 350 to 450 psi range. MoS2 remains effective up to its melting point exceeding 2,000F while PTFE forms a noxious gas near 650F. Some of this gas will invariably bypass the rings. Additionally, PTFE particle size is inconsistent and generally too large to remain in suspension in the oil. PTFE tends to “ball-up” or congeal at high temperatures, creating the possibility of plugging oil passages or pick-up screens."

Wouldn't the oil filter catch the particles before they could be distributed throughout the engine?
After what happened with Arco graphite, I would seriously think really hard before putting anything in powder form into an engine.

that is a very good question why the filter doesnt trap it?

For anybody not familiar with Arco graphite, it used graphite since it both handles high temperatures and is an excellent lubricant.
The problem came about when the graphite settled and clogged passage ways in the engine. That's why I'm so leery about any powdered substance being added to engine oil. I really can't see how that stuff can work and not have similar problems with clogging oil ports and the filter.

Remember, if you apply more than three coats of oil to the snake, you are playing with it.
