An engineer friend says that it is a compound of bronze powder and some binder that breaks down when heated. It is attracked to the hotter parts of an engine, for example, where main bearings are scored. The material will fill in the scored areas. According to him it does work, but as everyone has suggested it is a temporary fix. But it does last longer in a low rev engine versus a high output high revving one. If you are ultimately planning a rebuild, it shouldn't hurt anything, cause the bearings it made a little better will be replaced. I believe my friend said that a friend of his at Aberdeen proving ground used it and was able to put off a rebuild in a TR3 for a year so he could sock away the money to do it right. What little bit of exposure I've had to this pixy fairy dust stuff.
