Lunati Engine Break-In Lubricant
"The problem area for flat tappet engines is that modern motor oils no longer contain adequate levels of manganese, phosphorous and zinc," states Steve Slavik, Lunati technician. "These minerals are necessary for proper lifter rotation and without them you greatly increase the chance of a lifter seizing up and sliding along the camshaft. This scenario will cause non-repairable damage to the camshaft and lifter faces."
To resolve this issue, Lunati has formulated a flat tappet Voodoo Break-In Lubricant that easily blends with modern, non-synthetic motor oils to restore them to flat tappet compatibility. By simply pouring it in, the necessary levels of phosphorus, zinc, and manganese are added back to the oil, ensuring proper lifter rotation. Voodoo Break-In Lubricant is available in a 12-ounce easy-to-pour bottle and should be used in all engine applications when a new camshaft and lifter set is installed.
