I am already running Mobil1 15w50. Certainly the paste I can use on the brake pins.
Dissolving the powder into a volatile liquid (hydrophobic is best) before pouring into the crankcase (to get it into the oil) is a great idea. Now what volatile liquid won't react or breakdown the engine oil?
I dissolved about 1/2 ounce of the powder into a half quart or so of Mobil 1 5w30 that had sat in the sun for a while. It wasn't perfect, but I've had no problems.
A cam lifter is probably the engine component with the tightest tolerances, and none of my lifters have shown any problems- there have been no symptoms of any problems since I did the engine early this year.
