CONDITION of engine parts after testing under standardized procedure is the only satisfactory evidence for comparing the lubrication qualities of different oils, Mr. Keller concludes, showing the detailed set-up for such engine testing.Of seven pertinent operating variables, all except cooling conditions and oil supply were held constant. The five were power, speed, fuel mixture strength, detonation, and cylinder, piston, and ring design.Because experience has shown that detonation can destroy satisfactory cylinder lubrication and lead to excessive wear and ultimate failure, fuel having an octane rating of iso-octane + 0.8 cc tel (Aviation Test Method) was used for most of the test work reported. A Waukesha Cooperative Universal Engine fitted with a Wright Cyclone C9GC production cylinder and piston assembly, 6⅛ x 6⅞ or 202½ cu in., was used.Prior to the test the cylinder barrel was lapped with Minnesota 3M compound No. 500-2-A, with an old piston and old rings as the lapping surface.

SAE MOBILUS® Search Tips
Please note: All terms not contained within quotes, will be evaluated using the OR operator. This means that your search results will contain all results that contain ANY of the entered terms.
AND, OR, NOT
SAE MOBILUS supports the use of the AND, OR and NOT BOOLEAN operators ONLY function with the Advanced Search.
Using the asterisk, ( * ) allows you to search for a partial word. For example, entering a keyword search of aero* will search for any word beginning with aero.
Using the question mark, ( ? ) allows you to search for a word with a single character wildcard. For example, searching for t?re would match both tire and tyre
Words in double quotes " " are treated as a phrase. Conducting a search for "heat model" will return all results in which the exact phrase "heat model" is found, while "heat modeling" would NOT be included.
A term combined with a phrase will be joined with an OR operator.
Searching for Standards
When searching for a standard please use the entire Document Number assigned, which includes the abbreviation. A space can be used, or omitted between the abbreviation and number.
