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
such as the zinc and phosphorus in zinc dialkyldithiophosphate (ZDDP).
AMSOIL Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil is formulated with high levels of Zinc or more proper 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.
This is something AMSOIL has worked into all their lines of product. A benefit totally ignored by several well known lubricant companies. Not to mention the blending of these anti-rust, anti-corrosion additives requires a trade secrete others have not yet cared to master. So that’s built in with AMSOIL. More damage can occur while your engine is off over a season than when it’s busy at operating temperature.
In industry standard testing, AMSOIL Z-ROD completely prevented rust formation while a leading competitor did not.A
? Based upon in-house testing of AMSOIL Z-ROD 10W-40 and a leading competitor obtained on 7/25/2019 in ASTM D1748-10.
Use Z-ROD 10W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil as required. 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.
AMSOIL Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil is compatible with conventional and other synthetic motor oils. Mixing AMSOIL
Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil with other oils, however, will shorten the oil’s life expectancy and reduce its performance benefits.
Z-ROD Synthetic Motor Oil is safe for automotive seals. Aftermarket oil additives are not recommended for use with Z-ROD.
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 two years, whichever comes first.
If the car (classic) is seldom stored at all and driven daily also consider the AMSOIL AMO 10W-40 which is blended for more road miles per interval.
