Rislone at Walmart

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!

I just checked at Walmart in Kitchener and they do have Rislone. It is in the automotive department in with the oils. It is in 950ml yellow plastic containers with red writing - there was a smaller container, but I got this one, it was $5.27.

I'm not sure, but I'm guessing you are using it to put on engine parts before reassembly or use it as an after run oil.

I've never used after run oil (but I don't think it hurts) and some of my engines are 30 years old and are still good. But then I ALWAYS make sure my fuel has at least some castrol oil in it and run them dry (pinch intake fuel line until they stop) after flying.

Hope you can find the Rislone.

If I remember correctly Rislone was used as an engine conditioner in full size cars. It was poured into the engine just before an oil change. Driven aroond for a while during which time it was suppposed to clean off any residue/varnish inside the engine. All the deposits came out when the oil was drained.

That is if I remember correctly.

I used Rislone faithfully about 20 years ago. On my vehicles,when I changed the oil, I'd replace 1 quart (remember them?40oz) with 1 quart of Rislone. It came in a yellow bottle and the contents where "blue"..
I'm not really sure if it helped but the "valve train" of my engines where always clean whenever I had to remove the "valve covers" to replace a "gasket"!

Just use the tranny fluid same as after run. In fact, I even transfer the stuff from the litre bottle it's sold in to the little after run bottle I used up.

Rislone is an oil additive that is put in and left in. When I started in the automotive trade the old journeyman I worked under swore it was the best stuff he ever saw and he still uses it today, past 90 and still driving. I do not think rislone holds the advantages it once did with the advances in oil technology but who knows , as an afterrun oil it should work good and should displace moisture. Always thought it smelled like the candy necklaces I used to get when I was a kid at the candy store.
