Friction modifier and antiwear,Hmmm... I wonder if its better in a wet clutch application than the other FM/antiwear additives being used?It seems not many blenders use this additive. It stuck out on the Bel-Ray voa sheet and I didn't know its purpose, thanks for the info. Drew thats why you never get married.... If I'm gonna have to sell my boat/bike/guitars ect.. and eat mac & cheese every other day I'll do it on my own. LOL....

I believe Antimony is an EP additive in grease. The lube expert I work with always has me check for Antimony in micropitted bearing surfaces when we suspect an adverse reaction with EP additives.

Antimony is an ingredient in Schaeffers #132, what exactly is it? What does do? Schaeffers calls #132 a moly add, which it doesn't contain much of. AD
