I believe all ATF fluids and Air Tool Oil is synthetic.

Guys, I can't remember the last used engine I bought that didn't need bearings. Until you run it and check it while it's hot you won't know for sure how the bearings are, even when they feel smooth. I've worked on engines that the bearings felt good on, but when I ran the engine the bearings were done. And when I removed them they were shot. I buy all my used engines with the expectation that I have to change the bearings. And I'm usually right on. That's why I keep over 400 bearings in stock. Cheers Floyd

Re: Oil Your Glow Engine

Yep I ruined some great and expensive motors back in the day until I discovered after run oil! I think it was Clarence Lee in RCM magazine that I saw extoling the virtues (and low cost) of air tool oil and ATF and I followed that advice successfully until I sold my last nitro engine.

Good reminder for all, because 2C and 4C motors are more costly now than any time Ive been in the hobby.

Clarence Lee used to swear by Marvel Mystery oil also. Since I've been able to buy it once again in Canada my new after run oil mix is a third of each, air tool oil, ATF red tranny fluid and Marvel Mystery oil. The Marvel Mystery oil is the thinnest of the three. Any oil is better than none. Cheers Floyd

Both Walmart and Canadian Tire stock it now in Ontario. I haven't seen it in Canada for years until recently. If your Canadian tire doesn't stock it they should be able to order it in. It shows up on a Google search. The bottle is 946ml and is in the picture. Cheers Floyd

Re: Oil Your Glow Engine

As mentioned many times, I use a 50/50 mix of ATF and Air Tool Oil for both assembly and storage, (for well over 3 decades now). Either will likely work fine.

Never had any issues with gaskets, seals or diaphragms.
