Boy, have times changed. I assembled a flat tappet 351W this week. I needed some Moly cam assembly lube, and no one in town had any in stock. I ended up ordering it from Summit. Now granted this is the first flat tappet engine I have done in a while, but I really didn't think it would be that hard to find.

as I recall the GM EOS stuff was about phased out some yrs ago (20+) and then it came back. Higher price too. LOL

I use a product ZDDPlus I buy off eBay. I add it some of my older engines with regular dyno oil.

The moly paste stuff for camshafts , I order it from SUmmit too. Keep it on hand. I had a tube so long it dried out some what. LOL

I too have a monster tube of it that I keep "in stock" . I use it for a lot of things that I assemble to avoid a dry "Start-Up" .. Cool

I am still using the "Economy sized" tube of distributor point Lube that I bought in 1968 or so... Embarassed

Funny how time goes by ..... Rolling Eyes
