Oil is the lubricating fluid that your engine needs in order to function correctly. On an aircooled engine it performs 3 functions:

  • Lubrication - reduces wear on metal parts
  • Cooling - helps to carry heat away from the heads
  • Cleaning - keeps harmfull deposites in suspension until they can be filtered out (on those engines with oil filters)
