Frank 77 Posted February 19 Share Posted February 19 Sorry for the OTT headline, I have been watching too many You Tube videos the real situation is that the Perkins 4108 in our yacht has the usual 4108 curse of a leaking rear crankcase seal but is otherwise in good nick and utterly reliable. While I appreciate its not a permanent fix I was wondering about using this American Rislone Oil additive until next season when we will probably remove the motor and future proof it with an overhaul. The reviews are promising but if anyone has experience with it I'd appreciate some feedback. P.S I'm aware that there are schools of thought on oil additives with some folk being adamant that they are not a good idea, period ! my attitude is that it depends on the product and the context. This stuff has been available for years so I'm assuming the manufacturer would have been litigated to bankruptcy by now if there was any risk of damaging the engine.
