REPORT A Chevy V8 engine

REPORT A Chevy V8 engine gives this 1970 Iso Grifo Targa plenty of muscle. Photo: alpema Photo: alpema Driving a vintage car still conjures up a lot of happy feelings, reminding people of the “good old days”. Make and model really don’t matter. In the 1980s things went wild, with high-powered turbo engines placing new demands on lubricants. An occasional twist on this Stauffer lubricator is all it takes to apply grease to this water pump shaft. THE PASSION FOR CLASSIC CARS: A love that never rusts Whether it’s a pre-war veteran, a vintage car or a modern classic, driving one always evokes the spirit of motoring in days gone by. The various enthusiast groupings could not be more heterogeneous. Some love archaic technology that takes real muscle to operate and offers a minimum of modern convenience, while others are drawn to clever engineering and plenty of flashy chrome. But there’s one thing all these old vehicles have in common – none of these four-wheeled witnesses to times past will keep going without the right lubrication. It is only in the past twenty years or so that a real awareness has developed of old automobiles as pieces of cultural heritage. As the community has grown, fan clubs have been set up for nearly every make, manufacturers are producing replicas of hard-to-get spare parts, large trade shows draw thousands of aficionados, and clubs are lobbying politicians on behalf of the world’s rustiest hobby. THE CHARM OF CLASSIC CARS “We had one of those once!” – “This one is still my dream car today.” – “Our whole family went camping in Spain in one of these back in 1965.” – “That one was always the fastest in Top Trumps!” Classic car drivers hear this sort of thing all the time. Classic vehicles at a petrol station or rest stop on a mountain pass seem to radiate a magnetic attraction. Conversations start, and people are often surprised by their own affinity for vehicle and driver alike. Conversations tend to revolve more around design or engine features than fuel efficiency, which is a relatively minor concern since the average classic vehicle clocks up less than 2,000 kilometers a year. What’s much more important is the happy reminiscences of the “good old days” that these vehicles evoke. PROVERBIAL LUBRICATION When a system works smoothly, we often say that it “runs like a well-oiled machine”. Classic cars also need to be “well-oiled” – with period lubricants – to keep them running smoothly. Modern lubricants just won’t do. Instead, we need to look back to the era when the vehicle was built. MOTOREX has over 90 years of experience in the field, and our CLASSIC LINE offers a broad range of proven products for automobiles from the pre-war era down to our own times. A RANGE OF FOUR-STROKE MOTOR OILS Not every motor oil will do for veteran, vintage and classic cars. Depending on the lubrication method, the alloys used in engine components and the materials the seals are made of, using the wrong modern "Like a well-oiled machine" oil can often lead to damage. Today’s oils all contain detergent and dispersant additives designed to keep combustion products such as soot and coke that are insoluble in oil, along with oxidation products containing resins and asphalt, in suspension without clumping so they can be carried to the oil filter and filtered out. But the engines in vehicles from some eras may not even have a replaceable oil filter, just an oil pan to catch residues as they precipitate. 8 MOTOREX MAGAZINE I JULY 2011 9
