Ohle, from the "Land of the Palms" was closer to the answer.

It is SpectraSyn Elite™ 300:

[email protected] [email protected] -27F PP and 547F FP.

One application is its use (in small percentages) to formulate a low viscosity lubricant to provide increased hydrodynamic films at elevated operating temperatures.

Due to the cost of the Piston Cup Pin and the state of the economy, we cannot, at this time, offer the Piston Cup Pin but will monitor the economy and if things improve, once again offer this coveted treasure. grin2
