So I would like to share to those who might be helped by these facts. Using moly lessons cam wear, using high moly lessons cam wear even more and faster. Here is the science behind that statement page 11 PDF On another board we tested high moly Redline against other oils, and at about an 80% success rate hemi tick has been eliminated just by switching to Redline 5w30 and 5w20. I'm sure the chart is trinuclear moly, but there also is another graph showing different moly and lowering the coefficient of friction. So this is my suggestion, discount what about twenty guys have done with their hemi ticks. Start a new test here at bobs with anyone having a ticking condition, and by tick those who have it more sounds like a knock. The science is there, as the temps go up, the friction goes down, perfect for a ticking condition. And as it haves it, this is silencing ticking conditions with a success rate that is stunning. I just hope I can help anyone who bought a 50k dollar vehicle and has to live with this tick, as it turns out, it might be as simple as changing the oil. My main hope is to have other options as well. Unfortunately even using 0w40 PUP which has over 200ppm moly and may even be TN moly? didn't work as redline has. Read the science, if you want more info pm me, and maybe take a chance and report if it helped your tick. Now, it has taken most guys 500 miles for the ticks to go quiet, nd I am open to suggestions why that has been the fact. Both Ram forums have cams being wiped out on a weekly basis. The last 6 cam fails the users were using non moly oils. Most guys don't put a lot of thought into oil choice until there is a problem. Match that "coincidence" with the link on moly and cam wear above and decide for yourself. non moly oil creates 10 times the cam wear of over 200ppm moly, 5 times more cam wear then the average 50ppm moly. Take this to the next level guys and gals here at bob's. Test those hemi ticks, you have to change your oil anyway? All findings good or bad should be posted.
