HAT IS THE UNIQUE PROBLEM of the marine engine and
drive system? Water. Water promotes rust, corrosion, and rapid wear. Fresh-water
cooled boats operate cool, which promotes condensation and rust. Closed-system marine
engines tend to operate very hot, promoting the creation of acids - and engine
corrosion. The longer the engine works, the more water and acid build, and the water
and acid continue to work even after engine shut-down. Marine drive systems are
constantly exposed to moisture-rich conditions and require a water-resistant
lubricant to promote long life.
AMSOIL synthetic marine products fill the bill for all
the unique environments faced by boats and watercraft: water resistance, exceptionally
wide temperature operating ability, and maintenence of an effective lubricant film on
parts, even after long periods of inactivity.
