Graphogen?

The powerhead of my engine is apart and will soon be going back together (hopefully). Having lots of Graphogen in the shed, I wondered whether it is suitable for assembling a two-stroke engine as much as it is for a 4-stroke car engine?

Any experiences with it (good or bad) in outboards?

Thanks
Hugh

I have not used it on a 2 stroke, but I think you would need to be selective on where you used it? It is good stuff and ideal on things like valve stems (on a 4 stroke) etc ie moving parts that are not oil fed. It is supposed to be good for lubricating bores and big ends on start up, Not sure I would use it on the crank and shells etc. I prefer to use oil in those places

It would be interesting to find out how Graphite based lubricants react in a marine environment and different metals?

when I rebuilt power heads , on 2/strokes I used Quicksilver storage seal, on 4/strokes I used the engine oil that would be used when it was running. The only reason that I used Quicksilver products are one I dont know about anyother makers eqivelant, and two as I worked at the merc/mar distributers I had to use quicksilver products.
