Q: I have used ametech restore before and have noticed a difference in the running of the land rover v8. I am hoping that the knocking in my ford ranger will go. I have read the various posts on honest johns website and whilst the proof of the pudding....... I do not understand how it can work.
Like I said I am happy to give it a go but how?..... Thanks, David.

A:  The secret of Ametech RESTORE's success is that the Engine Restore treatment relies on the friction between the two surfaces to squash the little CSL beads into the scratches, scoring, scuff-marks etc., allowing them to build up in the scratches over the course of the next 1000 miles to make the surface metal good again. By filling these scratches, RESTORE Engine Restorer improves and restores the seal between the cylinder/piston assembly, bushings and bearings and so on, leading to a return of lost power and compression to the engine, tightening up the various assemblies and reducing vibration and noise and alleviating other symptoms associated with wear in the metal components such as oil burn, blue smoke and blow by. Once the CSL metal beads have filled the scratches in the engine metal, they remain there until worn away, so providing they have been given sufficient time to bed in, the benefits of the treatment will not be lost at the next oil change and should remain for up to 10,000 miles, sometimes much longer.

The only reasons RESTORE Engine Restorer might not work is if the cause of the problem is something broken, bent or otherwise deformed in the engine (in other words, more than just scratching of the metal surfaces), glazed bores (where the metal surface has become polished to a mirror finish, losing the honing marks and the ability to hold lubrication), something unrelated to metal wear (like blocked breather hoses, defective pressure relief valves or faulty oil pump), where the engine has been insufficiently prepared (sludge, varnishes and gums removed by cleaning/flushing the engine to reveal clean metal surfaces for the CSL to adhere to), or where the metal surfaces have become so worn that the permitted tolerances between them is exceeded, in which case the friction between the two surfaces will not be sufficient enough to grind the CSL particles into any scratches. Using friction-reducing oils like ester-based racing oils, slows down the RESTORE treatment too, for the same reason.
