    It means it made of paper and dough, it’s actually French term, you should know it. They make dolls with that ancient technology.

    Don’t know exactly why, but there’s a lot of camshafts ( especially Cummins ISX) killed by Schafer high molly oil!

    I'm sure you got dry steel pin n bushing. I think you'll be ok once the break free.

    That was the inference, not so much fragile but as the rust breaks free and erodes the pin to bushing wear will first show then increase. Chains may initially get snake like then will inevitably side slip and roll off in a bind. Care when using and you will be fine, making sure you monitor the rails as they do wear may make you feel paranoid but should be able to manage use for quite awhile.
