Did the "Engine Restore" Compression Improvement Last? One year later (Episode 2)

  • One year ago, I added Engine Restore to a turbo diesel engine (Ford 5000) tractor with low compression. https://www.faceclips.net/video/Hr8jIwVyIFE/video.html I tested compression before and after adding Engine Restorer (Restore). Did Engine Restorer continue to help the compression or was it a temporary fix? The tractor compression continued to improve a little and not it starts better when the engine is cold.

    One thing it works.... works very well just never put in 6 in 4 cylinder or 8 in 6. Cylinder you might have issues as i did with my 4 cylinder Honda car too much killed weak oil pump. Fixed oil pump and ran proper bottle size for 4 cylinder . more is not always better.

    I have an infiniti coupe that I only use Amsoil 100% synthetic oil and I was wondering if restore is compatible. Those engines use a lot of oil.

    So is the Engine Restore product a one-time use or do you have to keep using it to maintain the results?

    Here is the chemical description of Restore: a mixture of mineral oil, dispersant, anti-rust additives, AND submicron heterogeneous copper-,
    silver- and lead-powder particles.

    Here are the melting points of the added metals: Copper 1,984°F, Lead 621.5°F, and Silver 1,763°F.

    Since the temperature inside the cylinder reaches about 4532 F., the micro-metallic particles probably melt. Then they could fill in the cylinder wall scoring.

    You probably have to repeat applications because the metal filling probably will melt and the scoring will, again, be exposed.

    You cannot detect the added metals with your technique because they are NOT ferromagnetic.

    Nonetheless, your testing demonstrated long-term effectiveness. Good job!

    Thanks for the update: that is impressive!
    A magnet is a perfect way to test for metal particles. However, did you check your drain plug? Sometimes they are magnetic.

    I wonder how it works? Carbon deposits in cylinder wall scratches?

    Thanks for doing the longer-term test!

    Very good!
    I just find this additive in France, I will try it.

    Have you ever heard about "mecarun P18"?
    It seems to be a good product but I don't know if you can find it in USA.

    I'd like to see Dimethylsulfoxid as an engine flush in this particular engine. As I guess there's no plastic in it as the oil pump in modern car engines. It's a real strong stuff

    I'm curious what would happen if you stopped using the product for a while and tested again. would the compression go back down or would it remain high? If it goes back down, does it return to pre-product numbers, or would it end up somewhere in between?

    My 1967 318 i had issues with engine running very poorly I tested compression on all 8 #1 104psi #2 90psi #3 110psi #4 75psi #5 145psi #6 100psi #7 150psi #8 125psi I changed my oil and used a can of restore and drove it it for2 days 105 miles each day to work and I fuel economy has gone up to 12mpg from 6mpg and I noticed a big difference in it idleing so smooth now truck use to shack bad when it idled thanks so much for the video helped my engine alot. I tested my compression and all 8 cylinders are now over 170 psi

    Would using engine restore and Lucas heavy duty oil stabilizer together, cancel each other out or should I only use one or the other?

    well dang, between this engine restorer and motorkote I think you have a winner.
    15% of each then straight 30w to avoid the "mood swings" and "hot flashes".....
    (yes I've lived places where the walls literally dripped estrogen if you didn't get the joke)
    or go 20w40 instead of a 10w30 to keep some viscosity up, might be really good.

    meantime, at "Brodel Nation" channel, he's partially sponsored by "Bear's Products" who makes a fuel additive for increasing power (has one for diesel too), an oil conditioner, and a stop leak that you're only supposed to use half bottle once every 14-18 months. none really appropriate stuff for a Briggs type engine, except maybe his oil conditioner..
