AMSOIL’S NEW Z-ROD OILS ARE THE CAT’S MEOW FOR CLASSIC VEHICLES

ASM 0W-20 Synthetic
AMSOIL Z-ROD 10W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil (ZRT)  Available as 10W-30 and 20W-50 Oils

Modern Technology For Classic Cars

 

AMSOIL Z-ROD™ Synthetic Motor Oil is specially engineered for classic and high-performance vehicles. It features a high-zinc formulation to prevent wear on flat-tappet camshafts and other critical engine components, along with a proprietary blend of rust and corrosion inhibitors for added protection during long-term storage. Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil is designed to perform on the street and protect during storage.

AMSOIL, the leader in automotive synthetic lubrication, produced the world’s first API-qualified synthetic motor oil in 1972. Trust the extensive experience of AMSOIL, the First in Synthetics®, to do the best job protecting your engine.

Protects Flat-Tappet Cams
The lifters and cam lobes on flat-tappet camshafts common to classic and high performance vehicles slide rapidly against one another, producing high friction and heat. The friction between the two components can eventually wear down the cam and affect valve operation, ultimately resulting in lost engine power and reduced efficiency. In addition, these areas are splash-lubricated rather than pressure lubricated like other areas of the engine, which adds extra strain on anti-wear additives like the zinc and phosphorus in zinc dialkyldithiophosphate (ZDDP).

AMSOIL Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil is formulated with high levels of ZDDP to protect flat-tappet cams, lifters, rockers and other areas susceptible to wear. Its high-zinc, high-phosphorus formulation provides the extra wear protection these critical splash-lubricated components require.

Provides Long-Term Protection from Rust & Corrosion
AMSOIL Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil is formulated with a unique blend of rust and corrosion inhibitors to ensure maximum protection during long-term storage. To prove its effectiveness, AMSOIL submitted Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil to the Standard Test Method for Rust Protection in the Humidity Cabinet (ASTM D-1748). This test evaluates the rust-preventative properties of oil under high-humidity conditions, similar to those faced by a covered hot rod in a damp garage. The metal coupon treated with AMSOIL Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil showed no signs of oxidation after 192 hours, while the coupon treated with a leading competitor’s product failed the test after 24 hours.

APPLICATIONS
AMSOIL Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil is recommended for older or modified engines requiring either 10W-30 or 20W-50 motor oil. Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil meets API SL and earlier specifications, allowing for increased levels of anti-wear additives. ZDDP levels in Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil exceed the limits of API SM and newer specifications.

COMPATIBILITY
AMSOIL Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oils are compatible with conventional and other synthetic motor oils. Mixing AMSOIL Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oils with other oils, however, will shorten the oil’s life expectancy and reduce the performance benefits. Aftermarket oil additives are not recommended for use with AMSOIL Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oils.

SERVICE LIFE
Because engines in classic cars, hot rods and other performance vehicles are generally modified, a universal oil drain interval recommendation for these applications cannot be given. Responsibility for determining the drain interval duration rests with the owner. As a general service guideline, the maximum drain interval for Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil should not exceed 5,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first. In heavily modified engines (e.g. forced induction, nitrous) the maximum drain interval should not exceed 3,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first.

HEALTH & SAFETY
This product is not expected to cause health concerns when used for the intended application and according to the recommendations in the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). An MSDS is available via the Internet at http://www.amsoil.com or upon request at (715) 392-7101. Keep Out of Reach of Children. Don’t pollute. Return used oil to collection centers.

  1. People have always been price buyers for as long as I can remember and I am 78 years old. BUT when you can show people the advantages of using THE BEST lubricants, no matter the application, then they are interested in saving money, downtime and saving their equipment. Plus using AMSOIL with their longer service life, then price does not become an issue when they have to change oil and filter one time a year. People are keeping vehicles longer these days compared to years back and they will pay the higher price when you can show them benefits. I am sure you are aware, oil does not wear out, it gets contaminated and proper filtration is important. AMSOIL uses the Nano-Fiber Technology with 98.7% absolute efficiency at 20 microns. Nobody else can match what AMSOIL has on the market and contrary to popular believe K & N Filters ARE NOT THE BEST. I have been in the AMSOIL business since 1976 and today we have dealers and accounts all across the United States and Canada. Also people need to be aware of what they are getting. A $19.95 oil change and filter is not the best they can purchase. The NEW Z-Rod oils have additive packages designed to give classic vehicles Flat-tappet protection and Long-Term Protection from Rust and Corrosion which tends to happen to Classic cars that sit in storage alot and are not driven like normal street cars. Should you desire more information, check out AMSOIL at http://www.amsoil.com or my personal website at: http://www.the1stsyntheticoil.com Thank you for looking at my blog and commenting.
