Sheer magic of course.
The oil is so copletely unsuable that rPM is restrcted to 1500 by te
viscosity. Hence the forces on the chain are greatly reduced.
Actually thats the real snwer to teh OP's question.
Reduce RPM to less than 50% of max, and get 10 times the life.
Now there is a first, or at least a first since I returned to this ng.
dIMM sticking his head above the parapet and replying to one of Daves
posts. He still misses the point of course but perhaps he has finally
learned something. On second thoughts perhaps not, his snip drivel, etc.
posts have multiplied in recent days. :-)
Agreed, but that has nothing to do with cooling...
And this is different from any other oil how exactly? Once it has this
heat that it has "taken away" what does it do with it?
You seem to be saying that any oil is better that insufficient oil, or
oil that has been broken down. This does not demonstrate any ability of
the synthetic oil to "cool better". It demonstrates that in a harsh
environment the synthetic will survive better.
Boffins huh... ;-)
Very technical? It is ok we can do that here, tell us all about it.
So in effect you are saying that the engine is like a boiler, and the
sump like a radiator, with the oil taking the place of the water.
It gets pumped over hot bits in the engine, and hence acquires heat. It
gets pumped through the sump and looses (some) of it to the atmosphere.
Substitute synthetic oil for chip fat and the above process still seems
to work (at least until the engine seizes)
All I can see it that properties of the synthetic oil will keep it doing
the job it is supposed to do for longer and in harsher environments.
One of its jobs is cooling, but it does this by acting as a carrier of
heat from one place to another. Are you suggesting that the synthetic
will somehow absorb and release more heat on each pass through the
engine/sump that a non synthetic?
