Break-in oil is different from assembly lube, you need both. I use Valvoline VR-1 without any additives and have had no problems. I changed it after a few hours at the track. Joe Gibb & Brad Penn oils are a couple of well known suppliers of break in oil w/zinc. Just not sure if it's available where you are. Any conventional oil with a content of 1100ppm or more of zinc will work. DO NOT use a synthetic for break in.
