ROCOL A.S.P ANTI-SCUFFING PASTE.
« on: 25 April, 2021, 14:56:31 »
I have found this brand new unopened 500g tin of this product. Not knowing what it is for I looked at the product on Ebay. Tins this size are selling between 200 and 240, what is this expensive paste. Will I ever need it. Thank you.

It's for dry lubricatin of gears, splines etc. Whoever is selling it at 200-400 for 500g is ripping people off as it is available for 30-40 for that size can

The only use of it I personally know of is to lubricate the small splines on a coupling sleeve used when fitting a Fairey overdrive to a Series Land Rover - in use the splines in question get very little if any lubrication from the gearbox oil so the application of a dry film lubrication is specified by Fairey (and Land Rover when they offered it as an official option). I use Rocol 'Dry Moly Paste' on mine which is a similar high load dry film lubricant.

Rocol stuff is pricey - for a toothpaste sized tube of 'Dry Moly Paste' I paid about 35 from my local engineers suppliers around 10 years ago.

If you have some time on your hands, divide it up into little sachets and sell it on to Land Rover owners, I know someone does (or did?) do this already on eBay.
