Default Re: Rear Main Bearing Oil Behavior

a hydrodynamic lubricant film is created in every relative movement. It does not be a matter if the oil slides under pressure into the bearing or if the oil gets into it by spraying or dip in. This makes the adhesion / cohesion, to get in the bearing parts. Because the oil amount is extremely low, the oil film thickness is only a tight micro inch.
