Engine Oil Additive ZDDP

Attention Elan & Europa Owners:
Avoid cam and tappet wear! 
Your engine needs this additive.

Modern oils are hard on your old engine which was designed to run with motor oil containing ZDDP (Zinc Dialkyl Dithio Phosphate). Unfortunately this additive is no longer used in conventional and synthetic motor oils. 

ZDDP alters bearing and journal surface characteristics to prevent metal-to-metal contact, protecting camshafts and tappets especially. 

Just add ZDDPlus to every 4-5 quart oil change and your engine will be protected.  ZDDPlus works with any conventional or synthetic motor oil.  

A single 4 oz. bottle of ZDDPlus is only $9.95
Quantity Pricing:
4 @ $8.95 = $35.80
8 @ $8.50 = $68.00

ZDDPlus should not be used on an engine that has a catalytic converter or OBD.


The ultimate cam assembly lubricant

This lubricant has been specifically developed for the break-in requirements of flat-tappet engines like the Lotus TwinCam.  The special formulation keeps ZPaste on the contact points of the camshaft and tappets, protecting parts from damage during initial start-up.  After dissolving in the oil, the components in ZPaste continue to protect engine parts during break-in. 

You can use this cam lube whenever you have removed the cams for valve adjustments, to protect the lobes and tappets from scuffing when you restart the engine.  ZPaste will increase the ZDDP level of your oil as it dissolves.

ZPaste comes in a 5/8 oz packet for only $5.95 

Buy 3 packets for only $14.85 ($4.95 each)

Stainless Steel Exhaust Clamps

T-bolt band clamps can be tightened much more than standard worm-gear clamps.  And these stainless clamps don't deform pipes like standard muffler clamps, making removal of exhaust pipes much easier.  It's also easy to orient these clamps so that they don't reduce your car's ground clearance.
