This covers most engines and many manual gearboxes and is the simplest way of using Wolfblood, and one of the most efficient. Wolfblood works well as an engine oil additive with most car engines and the dry clutch engines on many race bikes and snowmobiles. This technique can also be applied to many gearboxes including many hydrostatics. For two stroke engines look at the guidance here.
Always use gloves when handling Wolfblood, we recommend nitrile gloves as they provide an effective barrier. In this application eye protection and dust masks are unlikely to be needed, but be careful and if in doubt wear protection such as an N95 rated mask and safety specs. Material safety data sheet.
REQUIREMENTS AND RATIOS
A typical mix is 5 grammes of Wolfblood per 1 litre of engine oil. Classic cars and very high performance race engines can benefit from mixes as high as 7g per litre. Check the oil quantity for your engine and make sure you have the correct grade and specification. Wolfblood can be used with all types of oil, including mineral, semi synthetic and fully synthetic. Wolfblood tubes contain 25g, ideal for treating a standard 5 litre container of oil. Use the links below to order, either directly from Hagen Automation via Paypal, Amazon UK or Ebay.
APPLICATION AS AN OIL ADDITIVE
Wolfblood should be used with fresh oil as part of an oil change. Change any oil filters and have filling the oil as the last job to do. Have the correct quantity of oil to hand for your engine. To ensure a good mix tip and pour the tube of Wolfblood directly into the oil’s container, replace the lid, and shake vigorously to mix well. Then pour into the engine and check the levels are correct. Run the engine as soon as possible as this will help the Wolfblood disperse through the engine and coat surfaces. Wolfblood engine oil additive is fine enough to pass through oil filters and any un adhered additive will continue to cycle in the engine. At levels of under 7g per litre and well mixed, WB will not make any noticeable change to overall oil viscosity.
NOTES ON THE EFFECTS
Wolfblood will be deposited onto metal surfaces to a maximum thickness of 0.5micron. Using this application technique the effect is cumulative and protection will build up and then be maintained. Because of the way WB adheres to surfaces at a molecular level the coating and the protection lasts beyond the next oil change.
CAUTIONS ON USING WOLFBLOOD AS AN ENGINE OIL ADDITIVE
Because of the effectiveness of Wolfblood it is advised against using in wet clutch engines, automatic gearboxes or any other application where friction materials are used which maybe affected. Simply the WB will reduce the friction of the clutch plates and may cause unwanted slip.
Good mixing and quick running of the engine are essential to effective distribution of WB throughout the engine or gearbox. WB is very dense, several times as dense as engine oil, and will tend to slowly fall out of suspension before it is adhered to surfaces. While usual running of the engine will help pick up and remix unused additive note that adding to an already filled engine is unlikely to lead to a good distribution of the additive and so is not recommended.
