[QUOTE=desertdriver;3640176]my problem is that I want to see hard evidence that significant amounts cling to the parts, enough to provide a film. QUOTE]

Woah there....woah

I did not say that amounts, sufficient to provide a lubricating film, cling to the metal parts.

I only stated that syn is purported to cling longer than non syn. I did not say anything about it being in sufficient quantity to lube. Only that it clinged longer by the days stated. And if true that is a good thing in itself.

It would be easy to test at home dipping samples in each lubricant and wait a few days to see what happens. One can feel the surfaces. Yes, this is not scientific and it does not prove anything other than possibly which maintains a film longer.

All vested interests aside, of course.
