Does this stuff actually do anything to your worn out engine?

What do you reckon? There's a Lilliputian outboard mechanic in the can who does a rebore and fits over-size rings before leaping out through the exhaust port and swimming back to the Ametech canning works to be re-tinned for the next happy customer!

Cynical, moi?

I would imagine that this stuff would actually work for a very short time - it will set around worn rings and scratched in the piston and probably give you a great performing engine untill it all starts to burn off and break away.

A bit like putting saw dust in a noisy gearbox to deaden the sound.

Probably a great idea if you have a nackered engine - treat it with this ready for when you sell it (hmm dont suppose any one will ever buy an engine for me ever again)
