Re: So the OIL that has the most MOLY ppm is.....

Are you talking about Zinc? If so, the thread below should getcha up to date...
There are a couple links in the thread that have the breakdown of who has what from the manufacturers. Now if your talking about "Moly" as some form of additive or moly as in assembly grease, I have no clue what you are talking about relating to oil... and if that's the case will ya share it with me so I will know too?

Re: So the OIL that has the most MOLY ppm is.....

I use Brad Penn oil, the 'green oil' as it commonly is referred to. It is similar to the oil that Kendall made back in the day.

It is a partial synthetic and has ZDDP additive and is suitable where API 'SJ' or "CF" is recommended. It is recommended for use in cars, light trucks, vans, SUV, or diesel powered vehicles.

The big deal seems to be that modern oils might not be compatitble with flat tappet lifters and cams. For the record, alot of guys that run NHRA stock cars (most use flat tappet lifters) use this oil.

I don't know of any stores that sell it, I buy mine from racers at the track. I can post their phone number if anyone wants it, and I do not benefit from any of these sales.

Brad Penn oil IS the old Kendall GT, and the best oil out there. You can also buy it online here http://www.bradpennracing.com/

I almost wrote that it is the old Kendall product, but was unsure if even a slight change had been made to it.

In the mid 80's I had a 72 challenger with a really worn 383 that I only used Kendal GT 'Nitro 70' in,lol.

read this oil article by the Dr. in Florida and see why thoughts about ZDDP are changing. More modern additives are already incorporated in today's oils and tested to higher limits as well.
