I finally got the rod for the HH120 in my SS12 (nicknamed knocker). I think of this until now, but will the 15w-40 engine oil work as assembly lube for it?


Also, what would work good as a substitute for a ring compressor?


Thanks.

I have used wide hose clamps for years. As a matter of fact, IDK if I could even find my compressor anymore... It's not perfect, but you can see better.

As for the oil, It's a darn sight better than nothing. Is that what you are using in the Engine afterwards?

Yep, I like my Rotella 15w-40 oil. I think it works better in the older engines.

I've heard of one of those band type tools for removing oil filters used as a ring compressor. Don't know if it was modified in any way though.
