genr8rs Sorry. I certainly dont mean to promote or rant about a product. I am simply asking for feedback if any one has experience with the particular line of lubricants much like many other threads containing many other products and manufacturers. I was not expecting a beat down. At this time I would prefer you delete this thread. Thank you.

Deuce As Moderator ... I am going to move this to a BASIC forum. I see no real technical merit to this thread.

68NovaSS Discussions and rants promoting a particular company should be posted in the Company Reviews forum, there are obvious concerns from members about what appear to be promotional activities for that company and their products.

302 Z28 Don't know squat about Archer lubes, but i do know it has huge shoes to fill if it claims to be better than Ford OEM traction additive. I have tried several of the highly advertised friction modifiers and none do as good a Job as the OEM Ford product. FWIW it has not been proven to me on any oil enough to switch from Mobil 1. If I can't get it at AutoZombie, O'Reilley's, or NAPA, or WalMart I don't use it.

1ownerT This is the same info I was given when I started using their gear lube.

Irelands child I really wouldn't want to be a test mule for an unknown product that's as important to a motor vehicle's longevity - that is without some sort of compensation. That Archer lubricants list while impressive, it is not a widely sold product (at least over the road) so really doesn't have a track record of millions of users. I might consider their chassis lube and maybe even the gear lube - but not the engine oil until I knew a lot more about it regardless of what the MSDS says are its constituants.

1ownerT I have a brother in-law who is/was a distributor. I have never used their oils but got a great deal on their synthetic gear lube and ran it for several years. I believe I used up my last qts this last summer.

genr8rs Here is the link to the oil I am considering using for my flat tappets with the amount of zink. It is the 20W-50 SJ.

genr8rs Thank you tango for the list. I see the info is from 1991. I'm new to this and Im not advertising for any body Cobalt327. Here is the link to Archer oil. If you go to their products page you will find lubricants listed by categories. Then click on the category you are checking and then click on the spec sheets for that product. I dont want any one going on a shipe hunt for the info.

If you mean zinc levels, I would be interested in a link to a site that gives this info.
