'No Rust' Oil for Winterizing

I have a Vetus M4.14 diesel and am preparing to winterize. As part of the winterizing instructions, the Vetus manual states that I should remove the glow plugs and spray a little "No rust" Oil into the cylinder and crank over a little.

I have searched and asked everywhere for "No Rust" Oil without any luck. Any suggestions on what this could be/brands etc would be much appreciated.

thanks..Northbreeze

We use Marvel Mystery Oil for 'fogging' our cylinders at winter layup. MMO has rust inhibiting additives and has a nice wintergreen scent!
See discussion of MMO here: Marvel Mystery Oil - Moyer Marine Atomic 4 Community
