Forty Years of Progress in Automotive Lubrication-A Look into the Future 540234

THIS review of early developments in automotive equipment and its lubrication requirements was presented by Mr. Mougey upon the occasion of his retirement from General Motors.
He covers such subjects as crankcase oil specifications, crankcase dilution and corrosion, oil consumption, break-in oils, e-p crankcase oils, hydraulic valve lifters, relation of oils to octane requirement increase in engines, and hypoid-gear rear-axle lubricants - discussing what progress has been made and what problems are still to be solved.
He also pays tribute to a few of the many individuals who contributed to the progress that has been made in automotive lubrication. He points out that there are many other subjects on which progress has been made, but that he couldn’t cover them all in one short paper.
