REPORT CONTINUED The formulas and technology in the lubricants used must be appropriate for the materials used in the vehicle. Drop by drop, this “oiler” still lubricates the cylinder and piston of an 1886 Benz Patent-Motorwagen today. Fredy Amweg in a 150-hp 1500 Lagonda Rapier with compressor from 1934 is still one of the fastest competitors in historical racing. Nearly every make has specialized repair shops that are often tested and recommended by its fan clubs. As a general principle, there are four different engine lubrication systems: Engine with no pressurized oil feed The engine is lubricated during operation by an oil mist created by continuously dipping a scoop into the oil sump. Lubricate with MOTOREX PREMIUM, an unalloyed engine oil that forms an oil mist. Engine with oil pump but no pressure-feed lubrication system The engine feeds oil under pressure to certain bearings and lubricates others only with an oil mist or through immersion. There is no oil filter. Lubricate with MOTOREX PREMIUM engine oil. Engine with pressure-feed lubrication system, no fine filter The engine is supplied with pressurized oil throughout. There is no fine filter. Contaminants are collected by a coarse filter, a magnet or a depression in the oil pan. Lubricate with MOTOREX OLDTIMER engine oil. Engine with pressure-feed lubrication system and fine filter The engine is supplied with pressurized oil throughout and has a replaceable fine filter. Additives detach contaminants and carry them to the oil filter. Depending on the model year, lubricate with MOTOREX EXTRA, TOPAZ or COBRA. An operator’s manual, if available, or a lubricant label attached to the vehicle can help in choosing the right motor oil. In any case, it’s a good idea to consult the manufacturer (if still in business) or a MOTOREX specialist when in doubt or after an overhaul. THE IDEAL PRODUCTS "The knowledgeable advice we get from Technical Customer Service and the laboratory services the company provides have been especially valuable." Markus Mösching, manager of the Classic Centre at Garage Pichler GFG AG, Feutersoey, Gstaad A SHOP YOU CAN TRUST Most people who have their cars maintained by a garage choose a specialist who is known for a certain make or has a good reputation in their club. The mechanics’ knowledge and skill are key. It’s not uncommon to find family shops that have been associated with a make for generations and know the peculiarities of the various models inside and out. For these establishments, finding the right type of grease to fill a Stauffer lubricator – a grease cup in which lubricant is applied to bearings through screw pressure by twisting the lid – is no problem. TINKERING AS CHANGE OF PACE Owners of veteran vehicles often enjoy tinkering with them personally. There may be no finer contrast to the everyday grind at the office than doing regular lubrication on your own classic car – provided, of course, that you know exactly what it needs. The true aficionado may spend years restoring one or more vehicles. Pros and hobbyists alike are glad to bring their lubrication questions to MOTOREX’s Technical Customer Service. As a Swiss lubrication technology firm, MOTOREX has built an outstanding reputation among enthusiasts for quality and advice over decades. A number of different clubs work with the specialists from Langenthal. SWISS OLDTIMERS SWISS OLDTIMERS, the Swiss Historic Vehicles Association, is the largest Swiss nationwide organization for historic motor vehicles, bringing together over 100 clubs and some 10,000 antique car owners. At the political level, SWISS OLDTIMERS lobbies to preserve members’ right to drive historic motor vehicles. SWISS OLDTIMERS maintains a successful working relationship with MOTOREX. “A valuable, skilled partner” MOTOREX CLASSIC LINE With its CLASSIC LINE, MOTOREX once again offers a compelling solution for every lubrication need.
