15 w50 Mobile

They had Mobil products on sale at Advance Auto Parts last month, and the sale may be still going on (it was something like 5 qts of synthetic oil and a Mobil filter for $32).

The Zinc in the Moble oil is definately a plus and nessary for the life of a flat tappet cam and even older hydralic cams, thanks for reminding me and others of that Fact . Handy7rick
