| Established in 1899, originally as CC Wakefield, Castrol launched their first|
lubricant for cars in 1906 and have been at the leading edge of motor technology ever since. Choosing the right engine oil for your veteran, vintage or classic car is essential for ensuring peak running condition and maximum wear protection for your engine. To make this decision easier Castrol have re-introduced three famous engine oil brands on which veteran, vintage and classic cars were designed to run. Historically many motor manufacturers often recommend Castrol by name in their original handbooks and now todays owners are able to follow those recommendations.
HeliCoil Inserts provide positive means for protecting and strengthening all tapped threads. They are mirror smooth, reinforced internal threads of cold rolled 18-8 stainless steel, or other space age material, with hardness far in excess of the usual tapped materials. The outstanding engineering features of HeliCoil Inserts, long recognised by the leading aircraft, industrial and military equipment manufactures, have established their widespread use in these fields. The many company standards and defence specifications of HeliCoil Inserts also prove their wide acceptance.
Warning:- For extremely severe service involving contact with acids, alkalies or sea water, Stainless Steel Inserts are not recommended.
