RE: ZDDP Additives



I had just bought a half dozen Fram on sale when I saw that one site comparing all the oil filters.  Never have seen a very scientific study but that was enough, took them all back to the store after a lifetime of Fram filters.  Well the price is always right.

 

Now I am at the other extreme - Mobil 1 or K&N synthetic media filters - Probably stick with K&N for the nut and ease of removal.  Darn it but the rubber seal on the Mobil 1’s like to stay on the engine.  Have to really watch that, especially on my Duramax that I put on pretty tight.

I had read an article from an former Fram engineer relaying how horrible their QC was. I've always used Wix or Purolator ever since. I've seen several tests that rank them #1 & #2 in terms of QC, filtration, etc.  Just my personal preference.

Hi Mo!

 

It is my understanding that the black area on Fram filters is a non skid surface to help spin 'um off! Especially if you have a petite mechanic like Nick!

What brands zinc & phosphorous (ZDDP) additives are you guys using at every oil change, if any? 

 

I have a mild cam on the shelf from Gary P.  (.435 lift x 256 duration by Schneider Cams vs stock .390/.400 lift x 240 duration).  It came with Schneider Cams break-in ZDDP additive and cam lube ZDDP assembly paste, which got me thinking if running Rotella T diesel engine oil is enough, even after break-in.

Been reading a bit to determine if running Rotella T is enough for even a stock to mild flat tappet Poly.  Contrary to some beliefs, the latest CJ-4 rated Rotella T does still have 1,200+ ppm ZDDP.  This can be seen in virgin oil analysis on sites like Bobistheoilguy.

 

This site, while clearly a marketing tool for their ZDDP product - explains in clear language the need for ZDDP - and why diesel engine oil may not be the best choice.
