New Assembley Lube by Redline

Redline claims "three times greater film strength than conventional black Molybdenum Disulfide greases and will not clog oil filters. "

Redline's WaterWetter is supposed to work very well, so this new product may have merit. I use the black assembley lube on the axles, swingarm bolt and the bolts in the linkage and shock assembly.

"Designed to be used a lubricant to apply to potential wear surfaces before assembly in order to prevent metal contact upon startup before adequate lubrication is supplied. Provides three times greater film strength than conventional black Molybdenum Disulfide greases and will not clog oil filters. This product clings to all surfaces and is an excellent rust inhibitor, allowing the storage of parts for years. A thin film of protection is all that is required on mating parts. Red Line Assembly Lube will mix with our motor oil and can be used on all lubricated parts such as cams, followers, pistons, and bearings, and bolt threads. Use only a small amount on bearing and piston surfaces - too much can make it difficult to turn over the engine. Red Line Assembly Lube is an excellent corrosion inhibitor and can be used on machined surfaces to provide long-term corrosion protection. Do not use on exhaust bolts or other high temperature bolts which require an anti-seize. "

Any thoughts from the technical gurus????

im just wondering? is assembly lube a good option to lube "axles, swingarm bolt and the bolts in the linkage and shock assembly"

i have never heard that done. i usually use a good waterproof grease.

I don't know anything about assembly lube but I use Redline oil in my transmission of my 4x4 truck and it does a great job there. It keeps the temp down nicely.

Just saying that I have had a good experience with Redline products.

absolutely, all redline products that i have used are excellent in their intended use, but i believe that "assembly lube" is usually used to assemble internal engine parts like "bearing" surfaces, lifters, cams etc. not really bearings like are used in swingarms, linkages and steering heads.

at least thats how i always used assembly lube.

correct me if i am wrong, as i would love to learn something new.
