Get a good synthetic 2 stroke oil for water cooled engines. I used Klotz KL 200 and it works great but I think straight Benol castor will gum up the ring and make it really hard to start. I'm not positive on all the Klotz blends but I think that one is an additive to be used with some synthetic oil in a nitro mix.

Just read the Klotz site, they say it is "Degummed" should be good, never tried it! [8D]

castor oil has a unique property it will run to a hot spot as regular oil will flow away from hot spots. i ran castor exclusively in my engines with gas and camp fuel. i had a reciever fail once and the engine sat there screaming in the bushes till we got to it with the chase boat and no water flowing through it. that darn thing was hot as heck but showed no signs of cylinder galling
