Redline Shockproof Lube-Questions.
« on: May 24, 2016, 07:22:38 PM »
Had need to remove ring gear and move it to other side since this was set up for a rear engine and I'm mid engine.I've zero experience with Redline Heavy Shockproof Gear Lube. I believe that is what is in it. What little I know (or THINK I know) is it has a lot of solid additives that dampen the shock loads between gear teeth. Is that what I'm seeing? The solids separated out? The trans has been sitting for 4 years since last at Fortin so far as I can tell. Don't think it was run after that. At least I've had it sitting for that long. Thanks for any info .

It is the shock proofing agent.  Likely a Molybdenum disulfide or equal. To the extent it is not black, it is likely a Hexagonal Boron Nitrade (h-BN). Used in space applications for lubrication.  No doubt a closely guarded secret as to exact composition, but it appears 30% solution?

Why yes, I did stay at a holiday inn last night.  Why you ask?

I checked the MSDS on it.  Does not add up to 100%.  Call it secret sauce?

I'm going to give geardoc an email. I am amazed at how it looks now. I know nothing but I don't think what I see is right. ??? I know it has separated a bit but the amount of liquid will not make it into a gear oil I've ever seen. It's like warm pudding just after it begins to set.

We used the run that in the Fortin in the 5 car. Good shit, heat cycle it once and the pudding will go away. If you see prolonged temps over 250, it will not last. Instead of adding a cooler, the owner switched to Swepco 250WT. Bye bye 20HP...........

Looks more like a grease than oil?  And it prob would thin once cycled, but a swap to fresh looks like cheap insurance to me.  Its not that thick in bottle or else it wouldn't pour out cap.

About $80 /gal. Some of the guys have said they heat it up a bit to get it to flow or it takes a while to fill a trans. I don't know,never used it. BDKW has some experience seeing the pudding but he's the only one ,so far,that has said that.  Redlines site says to NOT use any pumps or coolers with it though. Surprised me since Fortin uses the stuff,from what I can tell,my trans has a pump and was used. Redline says the thickening agents/shookproofing agents can build up and block them. WTF?

Redline says specifically to NOT use any coolers or pumps with it. I had to read that twice. LOL!
