Abstract:

Experimental results with a 25-hp charge-cooled rotary combustion engine are presented for a variety of lubricant stocks and additive packages. A rating method which combines endurance and deposition level is described. Lubricant performance is evaluated based upon this rating scheme, and contribution of base stock and additive package components is analyzed.
