I can only supply the original manufacturers number, Cook's #8805 and the Studebaker code W-ZO. The formula was Colloidal Iron Hydrate (Gold Drops Dry) 43.1% and Coarse Non-Leafing Aluminum 56.9%.
Once in awhile these original formulas are useable, most of the time they're not. Dupont Hotline may be able to help.
