Abstract:

Two Stryker vehicles were evaluated in a 20k mile Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, and Durability RAM-D test used to compare performance of a newly developed Single Common Powertrain Lubricant SCPL versus the baseline MIL-PRF-2104 lubricant. A post test inspection was completed on both engines for a visual inspection, and to attempt to assess engine wear and deposition control. At the inspection, both oils were found to perform similar, which suggests that the SCPL can be used as a drop in replacement. No major issues of engine wear or deposition were noted, and all results were as expected for a used engine in good working order.
