    I'm trying to find some information on Luftwaffe red ring oil (rötring) and green spindle oil (spindelöl grün). A modern equivalent to these two oils would be very helpful as well. Thanks.

    To answer my own question, I found some information on the red ring oil (rötring) from the Fischer-Tropsch website:

    Red ring oil (rötring) is mostly synthetic
    Specific gravity @ 60F: 0.873-0.875
    Viscosity @ 140F: 342-350
    Viscosity index: 105
    Flash point: 405F
    Sulphur content: 0.16%
