Castrol RR363 Brake Fluid 1 litre

CASTROL RR 363
CENTRAL SYSTEM HYDRAULIC FLUID
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Castrol RR 363 Central System Hydraulic Fluid is a polyglycol-based brake fluid specificallymodified and is the only brake fluid, which is listed by Rolls Royce for use in the reservoir of the
Height Control system, which incorporates the brake system fitted to all Rolls Royce cars producedbefore April 1979 and serial number 50,000. Since April 1979, Corniche and Carmargue models fitted with a new hydraulic brake system that requires a mineral-based hydraulic fluid. Additionally, all cars now produced by Rolls Royce are fitted with this system and require a mineral-based fluid.

PRODUCT APPLICATION
Castrol RR 363 Central System Hydraulic Fluid is Castrol’s recommendation for the Rolls Royce model vehicles noted in the Product Description.
Castrol RR 363 was proved to be a suitable replacement in older Citroen model vehicles (1955 to September 1966) where LHS2 fluids were specified. The reservoirs on these cars are painted black.
Castrol RR 363 should not be used in systems requiring Hydraulic System Mineral Oil Plus type fluids as system failure from seal damage will result.
Castrol RR 363 is miscible with other brake fluids meeting the Australian Standard AS/NZ 1960-1955. Such fluids can be used for top-up purposes when Castrol RR 363 is not available, but should be drained, flushed and refilled as soon as possible for maximum system efficiency and durability. Can be used wherever DOT 3 is specified. Suitable for a wide range of Japanese vehicles. Note:Putting Castrol RR 363 into a system requiring Castrol Hydraulic System Mineral Oil Plus or conversely putting Castrol Hydraulic System Mineral Oil Plus into a system requiring Castrol RR 363 will cause system failure, necessitating extensive repairs, running into many thousands of dollars.

Castrol hydraulic system mineral oil

Castrol HSMO Rolls Royce and Bentley
Specially formulated for use in Rolls Royce and Bentley hydraulic systems for models produced after 1980

The change to a hydraulic system mineral oil - HSMO for short - in preference to the previously used RR363 brake fluid has already been discussed. The advantages of HSMO are many. but in particular it gives improved lubrication, reducing friction between moving parts in the braking and levelling systems. It also has better damping properties than brake fluid, and absorbs shocks and vibration far more efficiently. Being non-hygroscopic. HSMO does not absorb water. thus preventing the risk of water-induced corrosion. Neither does its performance fall off: in severe cases, water being absorbed into brake fluid could result in the liquid boiling and brake failure. Another benefit is that it is not chemically corrosive like brake fluid and increases the longevity of hydraulic components. with the further advantage that should any fluid be accidentally spilt on paintwork there's less likelihood of damage.
An element of danger does exist with HSMO inasmuch that if it is introduced to a system Intended for RR363. or vice versa, much damage can result. Mixing fluids
can cause severe contamination of the hydraulic system. which could lead to complete failure. It's not surprising, then. that Rolls-Royce. recognising the danger of mixing HSMO and brake fluid. paid strict attention to advising its dealer network and. accordingly. training was provided so that anyone in any way connected with the servicing and maintenance of Rolls-Royce and Bentley motor cars was made fully aware of the correct use of fluids. The Crewe factory and dealerships operated a colour-coded safety system so that all labels and stickers pertaining to IISMO cars were green, and RR363 cars were amber. Owners soon realised that yellow and green did not mix, particularly if. as a result. it was necessary to
replace all seals and hoses which. at that time, cost around 1:2000! A particular problem Rolls-Royce encountered was that one brake fluid manufacturer coloured its brake fluid green. with potentially disastrous results ...

Castrol SAF-XA contains the maximum recommended treat of Sturaco 7098 for limited slip diff performance. No further Sturaco 7098 should be added.

Change Over Procedure
Drain and change from mineral gear oils to Castrol SAF-XA.

As Castrol SAF-XA is compatible with normal mineral gear oils, extensive flushing is not usually required. For optimum performance of Castrol SAF-XA, the following advice is offered. Where differential has been subjected to high operating temperatures the system should be flushed with clean gear oil. Either mineral (Castrol LSX 90, GO-J90 or LSX 85w-140) or preferably Castrol SAF-XA.

Draining the old oil while still warm, then refilling with fresh gear and then working the vehicle for at least one to two hours achieves the most effective flushing. Then drain and refill with Castrol SAF-XA making sure the differential is refilled to the correct level.

NOTE: Although Castrol SAF-XA is compatible with mineral oils, topping up with mineral oils will reduce some of the performance advantages and protection of Castrol SAF-XA.

CASTROL FORK OILS

Highly stable suspension oils formulated for use in motorcycle forks and shocks. Suitable for competition use. Available in four different grades.

Product Description

CASTROL FORK OILS are highly stable suspension oils, recommended for use in motorcycle forks and shocks for road, off road and competition use.

They are blended from highly refined base stocks and contain selected additives to provide protection against wear, corrosion and to minimise the effect of foam or air entrainment in the fork.

Product Benefits

• Prolongs seal life by resisting premature hardening and glazing, ensuring efficient fork operation.

• Stays in grade, maintaining consistent fork operation over a wide temperature range.

• Can be mixed with other CASTROL FORK OIL grades to obtain intermediate grades.
• Helps minimise rust and corrosion.

• Suppresses foam to ensure efficient damping operation.

Available in graduated Easy Squeeze 500 ml- packs to allow the correct amount of fluid to be added to the forks. These graduated packs are useful when mixing the fluids to attain intermediate viscosity fork oils.

Available in tour grades:

CASTROL FORK OIL 5
CASTROL FORK OIL 10
CASTROL FORK OIL 15
CASTROL FORK OIL 20

Fork Oil Servicing

Manufacturers normally recommend each fork be drained, flushed and refilled with fresh oil every 10,000 kms. More frequent changes may be necessary if operating consistently under dusty, wet or racing conditions.

Carefully follow the change procedure set out in the motorcycle service manual.Particular care should be taken to ensure that the measured quantity of oil, as stipulated, is replaced in each fork strut, as too little oil will give sloppy and noisy operation, while too much will give a harsh, stiff suspension.Intermixing Castrol Fork Oils

To obtain a Fork Oil of intermediate viscosity, mix the fluids in a dry, dust free container, using the graduated CASTROL FORK OIL packs to measure the quantity of fluid required. Stir thoroughly, then till each fork with the correct quantity of oil.

Market Application

CASTROL FORK OILS are recommended by Castrol for all motorcycle forks. Note that CASTROL FORK
OIL 5 is suitable for use in BMW front forks.

Castrol Kinematic Kinematic Viscosity Pour ISO
Fork Viscosity Viscosity Index Point Viscosity

15 8.2 46 150 -34 46
20 11.1 68 150 -36 68

Note: Forks with the same grading; e.g. 5, 10, etc., may be significantly different in viscosity. For example, CASTROL FORK OIL 5 is essentially the same viscosity as some products marketed as 2.5 grade oils.

To help reduce confusion, Castrol have also included ISO grading on our Fork Oils. The ISO grades relate directly to viscosity at 40°C. From the ISO grades, it can be seen that the ISO 32 (10)
grade is twice as viscous as the ISO 15 (5) grade. The ISO 46 (15) grade is 50% thicker again than the ISO 32 (10) grade and the ISO 68 (20) grade 50% thicker than the ISO 46 (15) grade.

Choosing the right grease


The correct choice of grease is a critical feature in cost effective lubrication. Here is a set of useful recommendations for common grease applications to guide your choice.

Ball Joints
It is preferable to grease more frequently rather than rely on so-called factoryfilled long or extended life greases. Use a No. 2 lithium or lithium complex grease
such a Castrol EPL2, APX T, LMM or SBX 2 Grease. All will permit extended service intervals should they be required.

Wheel Bearings
The wide use of disc brakes calls for greases with greater resistance to bleed, particularly in heavier vehicles and under racing conditions.

For such applications we recommend Castrol HTB Grease E (bentone based) or Castrol APX T Grease (Lithium complex) which can be used at working temperatures above 1750C.
For frequency of repacking wheel bearings, refer to the motor manufacturer's recommendations. Note that the style of driving, wheel balance and different road surfaces can have a significant effect on the life of the grease.Do not mix greases

Universal Joints
The design of these vary, as does the lubricant and method of application. We recommend Castrol EPL2 or APX T Grease (Lithium Complex) for best results.

Shackles
Castrol EPL2 Grease is generally applicable to all types, EXCEPT those with rubber bushes and those which do not require lubrication.

Where shackles are subjected to severe vibration such as rough roads, use Castrol SBX2. Greases

Steering Boxes
Follow manufacturer recommendations. If the steering box is grease lubricated use Castrol EPL0 or SL Heavy Grease.

Starters, Generators and Distributors
Follow manufacturer recommendations as bearings are often packed for life with a specialty grease. If repacking is required we recommend Castrol EPL2 or APX T Grease.

Brakes and Clutch Hydraulic Mechanisms
These systems generally employ rubber washers and o-rings. As even small quantities of mineral oil on rubber can cause deterioration, do not use a conventional mineral oil based grease. If metal components periodically in contact with fluid require a lubricant, use only a grease specially designed for these components, such as Castrol GRR (B) Grease.

Boating
We recommend Castrol Marine Grease or Castrol AP3 Grease for boat trailer bearings.Owners must recognise that the entry of water into bearings causes rust and wear.We recommend cleaning and packing of bearings at least every 6 months.

NO GREASE CAN COMPENSATE FOR INADEQUATE MAINTENANCE.

High Impact Surfaces
The pivot pins used, for example on the bucket control arms of front end loaders are subject to high shock load conditions. To prevent excessive wear we recommend Castrol SBX2 or BMX2 Grease.

Constant Velocity Joints
Constant velocity joints are usually used on front wheel drive cars, some 4 wheel drives and rear wheel drive cars with independent rear suspension.

Our prime recommendation for constant velocity joints is Castrol SBX2, Castrol BMX2, Castrol LMM and Agri Bortax may also be used.

Virtually all manufacturers recommend grease containing solid lubricants Castrol SBX 2 offers the best combination of adhesiveness, base oil viscosity, melting point, extreme pressure and antiwear additives.

Note: When repacking bearings, completely remove all old grease and wash the bearings in solvent and air dry before applying a new grease.

NEVER mix grease of different types as they can react physically, lose their structure and not lubricate effectively.

Castrol Biolube 100
Full synthetic high performance lubricant delivering exceptionally clean burning with proven performance in competition outboard engines.

Product Description
Castrol Biolube 100 is a superior quality, NMMA TC-W3(TM) approved,synthetic based lubricant that is specially formulated for high powered, water cooled, two stroke outboard engines.

Castrol has developed Castrol Biolube 100 to provide a high level of protection and performance at fuel/oil mixture ratios of up to 100:1,where a conventional mineral outboard oil is used at 50:1.

Winner of the Pollution Abatement Technology Award in 1985, Castrol Biolube 100 has been specially developed to meet increasing environment demands of biodegradability, low hydrocarbon emissions and low toxicity.

Product Application

Castrol Biolube 100 is our prime recommendation for outboard and jet ski engines used in competition. Petrol/oil ratios are much lower in racing than for unmodified engines used for normal boating.

Castrol Biolube 100 has been successfully used around the world in competition engines. The appropriate petrol/oil ratio will depend on the degree of engine modification and maximum engine speed.

Higher petrol/oil ratios can be used for lower engine speeds.
NOTE 1:

Modified engines in outboard and jet skis should use petrol/oil ratios as per competition applications whether involved in competition or not.
NOTE 2:

Many manufacturers have revised their lubricant recommendations for two stroke outboard engines to NMMA TC-W3(TM) for 1992/93 models onwards,

Castrol Biolube 100 is a qualified TC-W3(TM) lubricant Licence Number 3-51020. Castrol Biolube 100 may be used where either TC-W3(TM), TC-WII(R) or TC-W lubricants are specified.
