¿¿¿What about oil???
« on: November 24, 2010, 11:37:22 AM »

I got to do an oil change in my 331 hemi. What is the best thing for the oldies? I also have to change the oil in a 67 dodge truck... the 413 industrial. Should I use the same in both?

ZDDP is also important.

Gulf has a good range of 15W40 and 20W50 specifically for old US-V8s. I will soon be distributing this over here as well.

I used Valvolene 40W Racing oil in my 440 Imperial....it has plenty of ZDDP in it to protect the camshaft and lifters. It started fine on a couple of really cold mornings we had last month too.

When I change it (and eliminate a few small leaks )  I'm going to switch to Mobil1 full synthetic. I've used it for years in my other cars . The 15w50 is the only weight they sell with the full amount of ZDDP needed for performance and turbocharged engines. The other weights are formulated differently.

I like Castrol GTX 30 HD.  In the newer cars it's 10-30 or 10-40 depending on what the book calls for, but it's still Castrol GTX.

I use Valvoline Blue Diesel 15w40 (dino, not synthetic, though it is
available in full synth too) in all my older collector cars. Has one of
the highest ZDDP levels available.

I use the oil from my neighbor across the street when he changes it on his motor home.

 Sulfur is the last thing you want in a motor oil - high sulfur oils turn to sludge very quickly

 All regular (non-diesel/non race oils) have almost no ZDDP in them anymore--apparently it clogs catalytic converters, and Uncle Sugar mandates that converters last for 150,000 miles, so the ZDDP had to go. The upside is that all cars made since the 90's all have had roller cams that can survive without the high pressure additives.

 Don't use that stuff in a flat tappet cam engine unless you like changing cams!
 
That condition does not exist for me in any of my cars - all hydraulic.
 
However, I've used GTX for years with no problems in any car I've owned or own, including my '61 VW Type 1 whose motor was anything but stock.  I've had no problems.
