Valve Lubricant

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know which fuel additive is recommended for our V12 engines, concerned about the valves in particular with unleaded ethanol fuel. Thanks for any information

I DROVE my '41 Cabriolet with a freshly rebuilt V12 600 miles to the Museum opening last summer , only to arrive with the clatter of valves. Several people told me about

MMO (Marvel Mystery Oil ) , 4oz. per 10 gallons of gas. I immediately bought some before the return trip . After driving LESS thank 10 miles back to the Hotel , the clatter was GONE.

It has been greatly heralded on the Ford Barn for years ; I am now a true believer.

Unleaded fuel will not do any damage to your valve train. Our V12s and the V8s of the same era has hardened seats.
