AMSOIL Motor Oils, Flat Tappet and Camshaft Lobe Lubrication

AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils, Flat Tappet and Camshaft Lobe Lubrication

Here are some facts for all engines.

Provide facts outlining lubrication requirements of flat tappet
camshaft engines and the importance of higher levels of zinc
and phosphorus.

ISSUES:
Flat tappet camshafts undergo extreme pressure and loads,
thus requiring an engine oil that is fortified with anti-wear
additives to provide premium protection. The severity of
higher spring pressure in racing engines also creates the need
for additional wear protection.
To preserve catalytic converter life, phosphorus levels in
motor oil have been reduced. Concerns have risen that oils
containing lower levels of zinc/phosphorus could provide
insufficient protection in high-pressure areas of flat tappets
and camshaft lobes found in many older and high performance
engines.

extended oil intervals


In addition to the lack of lube .
A WORD TO THE WISE This Is a picture is a spinner Filter from an Mack AC 460 Engne
If any of you intend on useing extended life oils ie:Amsoil pensoil shaffers ect be very atentive of this filter!Newer engines tend to dirty the oil alot faster than those of yester year
After 20000 miles the filter is totally plugged ,this guy was planing on a 50000 oil change interval using schaffers oil .If any of you intend on extended intervals intend on changing this filter at least every 10 to 15 thou miles. This seems to be worse on newer egr engines but is somthing to be thinking on if your going to run longer inervals.Change them filters guys!

Also think about dual bypass systems for our newer modern light truck applications they will sure help going extended oil change intervals. Much better filtration at inexpensive pricing.

I do understand your thoughts but our filter is a leader in the filter industry.

Info on our EaO filters

AMSOIL Ea Oil Filters (EaO)
Made with premium-grade full synthetic media. Ea Oil Filters feature advanced full synthetic nanofiber technology, making them the highest efficiency filters that are available for the auto/light truck market. AMSOIL EaO Filters are guaranteed for 25,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first, when used in conjunction with AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oil in gasoline and diesel vehicles in normal service, 15,000 miles in severe service. Absolute Efficiency
AMSOIL Ea Oil Filters have the best efficiency rating in the industry. EaO Filters provide a filtering efficiency in accordance with industry standard ISO 4548-12 of 98.7 percent at 15 microns, while competitive filters containing conventional cellulose medias range from 40 to 80 percent efficiency.
Less Restriction
AMSOIL Ea Oil Filters have significantly lower restriction than conventional cellulose media filters. Their small synthetic nanofibers trap smaller particles and hold more contaminants, resulting in lower restriction. During cold temperature warm-up periods, an EaO lube filter allows the oil to easily flow through the filter compared to a typical cellulose filter. Lower restriction decreases engine wear.
More Capacity
A filter’s capacity refers to the amount of contaminants it can hold and still remain effective. AMSOIL EaO Filters have a far greater capacity than competing filter lines. When used in conjunction with AMSOIL synthetic motor oils in normal service, EaO Filters are guaranteed to remain effective for 25,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first.

this is a fact Newer engines tend to dirty the oil alot faster than those of yester year
change them filters guys.I don't care what oil you use!How ever good that filter is ,new engine enduce More carbon into the oil .in my mind it will clog faster it stands to reason.

I was scared this was coming Fred, sooner or later. You knew I was embarrassed about this but to post the filter picture on the internet really is humiliating for me. I've used shaffers 50k oil since my first (and last) Edsel automobile and this is a first for me, I mean plugging up the darn filter.

We've found the problem with the 50k oil in the newer rigs is the higher loads associated with the DPF+LNT+SOX+EGR converters. As emissions gets even tighter to get 50k+ between motor oil changes we failed to install a Urea tank to supplement emissions systems during peak load situations and eliminate the resulting emissions with plugged filters. I failed to do this....

Don't want to get over anybody's head here but in order to get my post count back up I feel obligated to explain a few things. Going with the shaffers 50k oil involves a lot more than I have time to explain here. But in short it involves a different converter and EGR control system and for the most part it's a simple bolt on (factory bolt on as in Built in) type system. Much better than a ground up re-design.

Mack has no in-house spec on converters yet and rather than go through APIG specs we came up with an umbrella that covers specific procedures. That being, change your filter every ten thousand miles or so.....

Well done Fred, Thank You!

Again, I'll leave it with the umbrella that covers specific procedures. Do to the Holiday I'll spare everybody the pertinent facts on the synthetic blinker fluid change intervals at this time.

Happy New Year Everybody!
