    anyone use LUCAS oil treatment?

    just wondering if using the lucas oil stabilizer would hurt the s/c clutch?? i use it in my detroit diesel and a few other gasoline engines ( pick-up, bikes, mower ect...) i dont think it would cause it to slip but i know it would help to lubricate the bearings better..

    That Lucas oil treatment is badasssss stuff, I `ve used it myself in other applications, but IMHO I don`t think it`s a good idea to add anything to the oil in our 4-tecs. A good brand and timely oil changes are best for our ski`s, just my 2 cents...

    Lucas oil stabilizer does make the oil more tacky, stick to metal surfaces and create a stronger film but with the type of oil pressure regulator and oil jets in our 4 tecs along with the tolerances and the exccessive RPM`s I`d be a little leary of it`s use...PR...

    I used it in a car with 75,000 miles. It made a cold knock (only during start up) knock ALOT louder.

    I changed it out back to reg. oil and the knock went back to "normal"

    I'd wouldn

    Just stick with an oil that meets the specs. Most manufacutres state in the manual to not add any oil additives to the oil.
