Abstract:
A short engine sequence test, based on the Sequence VD procedure, was used to screen FFV oil candidates more rapidly. Since only one engine is needed to compare the wear-protection performance of several lubricants, engine hardware variability is not a significant issue in this test procedure.Several lubricants, some specially formulated for FFV engines, were tested using standard Sequence VD engine hardware which includes molybdenum top piston-rings. Results showed clear discrimination of the performance of oil candidates. These lubricants were also tested using an engine with chromium-faced top rings and exhibited similar performance ranking.
