: Cleaning a Forge BOV.

21st April 2010, 07:17 PM
Have any of you guys cleaned a Forge BOV (Atmospheric BOV)? I want to clean all of the original lube off and apply a new lubricant. What lubricant do I use? I have taken the valve apart before to tune. I just don't want to use the wrong lube and ruin the seal. Thanks!

Bearing grease is good (yellow) or (red) either one will condition the o ring and not harden under the hot air temps passing through. Hope this helps!

Thanks for the help guys. I have red axle bearing greese at home so I may just use that unless there is a specific type I should use.

Thats what I used last time I cleaned/lubed my BOV. 3,000 miles on it and still working great!

Mobil 1 Synthetic Lube. That's what forge recommends.
