IMO there is NO substitute for Castor oil.
Let someone else/use praise the benefits of Synths.
When the engine conditions become extreme the castor provides that extra bit of protection that saves the engine..
Pharmacy /medicinal castor works 'fine', yesss it gums more, but it's a Small price to pay for a useable engine.
SIG does (did??) sell quart jugs of their finest Castor, asking a very fair price + shipping $.. very nice.
Recently dug out a few old Fast Combat motors, 2 were messed (bores and rods) from running on Klotz laced fuel instead of Castor based , not too many runs either according the the storage notes.
( was the popular 'new' stuff .. back then)
Everybody makes mistakes
Trick is in not repeating the more popular ones :-)
