Works Great for Flat Tappet Cams

December 25, 2013
I used this to protect the new Flat Tappet cam I installed in my 1957 Ford Thunderbird. Great assembly lube. The engine has about 600 miles on it with no problems. Great product for initial start-up.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Good stuff

March 30, 2012
I built two engines. First was stock just to see if I could and learn from my mistakes. Second was for a 500 hp engine to play on the streets with. Both were a success. No cam failures and used this product both times. One container used on the cam, crankshaft, wrist pins, seals, rockers, etc ... was enough to assemble 2 engines. Stays on the cam for initial engine fire-up and does not run off while sitting like assembly lube. Worked for an amateur so it must be good.
Pros:
  • works
Yes, I recommend this product.

Yes...I have used this product for years with no problems at all...even on flathead engines...

No this lube is not designed to be used for anything other than listed. It is ideal for flat tappet camshaft lobes. You will need a general assembly lube for items such as rod and main bearings, seals, etc. See part numbers 60710004, 484101521, and 9154040 for a general assembly lube. Also we highly recommend that this moly based ISKY Rev-lube be used on flat tappet camshafts instead of one the above assembly lubes.
