About this event
Join us for a great Tech Talk video-teleconference (VTC) on Wednesday evening, June 8th, 2022 at 7:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time. Certified Tribologist Lake Speed Jr. will discuss oil analysis in detail. If you attended his talk on motor oils last year, you'll recall that he said the only way to know you are using the right oil is to consistently analyze your used motor oil. Long-term analysis of used motor oil provides the best insight as to whether your motor oil is doing its job to protect the engine. One of our members changed oil brands after last year's talk based on the oil analysis and his engine wear metals look much better now. Lake will cover what to look for when reviewing oil analysis results.
Lake was forced to learn about oils when he was working for Joe Gibbs Racing, and after losing an oil sponsor they went to an off-the-shelf oil. Immediately, they started having cam failures when running newly rebuilt engines on the dyno. This prompted them to "design" their own oil. That, and the associated used oil analysis gave Lake the insight to fully understand used oil analysis reports, and his daughter currently runs an oil analysis business. Of note, Lake's daily driver is a 1983 Mercedes 240D. Lake is currently the Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Total Seal Piston Rings.
