I have used Silkolene Comp 2 for quite a few years for my 2 Speeder Engine and happily use it for the 2 Speed Gear. Being fully synthetic it lubricates the 2 speed drums really well. I tend to pump the plunger quite hard every 30 miles to force the oil to the far side of the gear. I have a 40T low gear sprocket and have followed a slow car up the last part of Sunrising Hill on the Banbury Run slipping low gear without it grabbing. I could not do this with a non synthetic oil.
