LUBRICATION STUDIES OF TWO-CYCLE GASOLINE ENGINES 590373
Two-cycle gasoline engines offer some unusual problems in lubricant development. Because of the one-pass lubrication system employed, the lubricant affects combustion and the fuel system in general to a much greater extent than in four-cycle engines. This paper discusses the various aspects of lubricant composition as related to engine operations. Data are presented which show those factors of base stock composition and of various additive classes which affect the piston cleanliness, exhaust system deposits, wear, and spark, plug operation of two-cycle gasoline engines.
