Im about to put redline in. i have a question on capacity for 260z box.

Do you put 1.5L in or 2L ?The service book says 1.5, but elsewhere i read 2L. is 2L a problem or is this a strict thing? looking for maximum protection (least wear)?

Its hard also as i do it on ramps so you need to keep an eye on the bottle level to know how much you put in. and no dipstick from what i can see.

cheers

It's a 2person job, use a 3' bit of garden hose, a funnel, you get under a safe secured xar, stick hose end in box, have mate get 1.5 litres as quick as pissible into funnel, stop, let all drain down, THEN, have him pour small amount, let drain, repeat repeat, when you can feel it ALMOST at bottom edge of hole, use pinky finger, one more small bit, drain down hose, screw in filler plug, do not overtighten, and job done.

For high zinc engine oil,  have a look at  OTECH LUBRICANTS at Narangba north of Brisbane they are on the interweb.

There is high, and there is HIGH!

Stuff like LAT, Brad Penn, Joe Gibbs, is all HIGH, ie from 5000ppm and up.

Oils conforming to current SF spec for normal use, as approved by various EPA bodies will allow 50 to 150 ppm
Which for our upper head valveteains, is not good enough.

Links to OTECH product spec sheets please?
The majority of oil bottlers won't even tell you how little zinc is contained!

i know that it made a difference to my noisy tappetts. If you give them a call they might tell you the zinc levels.They only give viscosity info on the MSDS
