Break-In Gear Oil

Driven Racing Oil 80W-90 Break-In Gear Oil Benefits Gear Teeth

Conventional 80W-90 Break-In Gear Oil from Driven provides excellent break-in protection by utilizing a high EP (extreme pressure) additive package that promotes proper mating of gear sets without scuffing or pitting. By polishing the gear teeth, micro-pitting is eliminated to improve gear durability. A smooth gear surface can carry more load and will last longer. This oil is designed for hypoid and spiral bevel gear sets like those found in 9-inch and quick-change rear ends. It is safe to use in gear boxes and differentials and will not harm brass or copper components. Driven’s 80W-90 Break-In Gear Oil is designed to be drained following the normal break-in cycle (500-700 miles) on new gear sets to remove break-in wear metals. A synthetic gear oil may then be used to get the most protection and efficiency from the rear gear and transmission.



Driven Racing Oil HVL | High Viscosity Lubricant Packets

Driven Racing Oil HVL | High Viscosity Lubricant Packets Provide Break-In Aid

Each 5/8 oz. HVL | High Viscosity Lubricant packet from Driven provides enough lubricant to pre-lube bearings or timing sets in most engines. The packets provide excellent pre-lube for timing chains and piston skirts. The non-foaming product mixes with the break-in oil and extends the film thickness during the break-in process. HVL’s unique, high-load-carrying capacity formula provides proper flow and protection during engine assembly and start-up. The lubricant replaces the use of motor oil and tacky lubes during assembly, and it will not harden or cause parts to become sticky during storage.
