Recommended Engine Oil

Post  Fatz n' Finz on Sun Jan 15, 2012 7:41 pm

Hi Guys,

Can't get any sense out of my own make forum, so thought i'd try the boys / girls on here :-

Got a nice and quiet 390 c.i 6.4 ltr V8 Engine in me yank and I want a good ,thick 20/50 oil to maintain the present quietness used to run Duckhams and a can of Wynns in me Zodi, with no problems but now can't get it anywhere, at present got that Classic stuff in a cream coloured can in in, but not really happy, seems to me I need something thicker and better, may be a thick Diesel oil as I just want to keep it as it is now. study

Regards,

Fatz n' Finz.

You can get this instead of Duckhams, it is also 20/50

I wonder if classic car owners over think the oil question and the oil companies are happy to exploit us with new fangled ingregients that we must have Suspect
