Dyno Test on Ford Engine


TriboDyn® Dyno Test
On a Ford Flat Head Engine

An independent test of TriboDyn was arranged with M.A.C.H. (Yancer Specialty Inc. 520-568-3511,Phoenix, AZ). No payment was made nor requested to avoid any concern about a conflict of interest. Mr.Bud Yancer regularly provides Dyno testing to serve his customers and to advance his own knowledge.

Mr. Yancer chose an older engine, a Ford Flat head as it has fewer moving parts and any gain or improvement would be evidence of the function of the TriboDyn additive. Mr. Yancer indicated the following:


The engine was not freshened for the test and was run as is.
The engine was run with no additive and the following information was logged:
Water Temp at start: 180 F. At the end of testing: 200 F+.
Oil temp stabilized 
Idle set
Fuel air ration as measured at collector 12.1:1
Standard Motor oil was utilized 
The engine produced 105 H.P. (Modified slightly from stock configuration with 2 Carbs [Strombergs]and tube exhaust)
The engine produced 181 ft. lbs. of torque.
Several sweep runs were made to allow for any variations.

The TriboDyn additive was added to the oil after allowing the engine to cool after the initial testing. Sweep runs were performed duplicating the first series of tests.

Results:
Power Increased by 7.5 H.P. (max) and 3 H.P. at a steady 2800 RPM
Torque increased over 12 Ft Lbs.
The Idle increased by 100 RPM and no adjustments.
Water Temp stayed at 180 F for the entire series of tests.
The oil temperature remained the same but took longer to rise to operating temperature.
The Fuel air ratio improved to 12.5:1

The above is indicative of reduced internal friction. The increase in H.P. and Torque and idle RPM was a direct result of this reduction and aided in the improved fuel numbers. The lower water temperature and slower rise in oil temperature is indicative of lower frictional heat being generated.Of special interest is that the engine had many of the internal parts coated with friction reducing coatings as well as combustion chamber coatings, prior to initial testing. The results are unexpected as the coatings impart similar friction reduction characteristics and increased power numbers, though at a significantly increased cost. The fact that additional gains were realized is further evidence of the benefits imparted by TriboDyn when added to the oil.
