Which type of Oil do you use in your 1950s and older Antique and classic Cars???
There are some old car folks who like straight weight oil (ex; SAE #30W) in their old cars while some say Multi-viscosity (ex:10W-30W)
is the best, and modern way to go...
Some say use only NON-Detergent Oil in an old dirty engine...Some say to use ONLY Detergent oil as it is far better and won't free-up old dirt deposits...
And what about synthetic (Mobil 1 ) & Blends in an old car ?
What is your opinion???
What are your arguments (Both + & - ) for the oil you use!!!
How about Rear-end gear lube for pre-Hypoid
type of Antique worm gear (600W) Steam Cylinder Oil??? Is there a better Modern lube for this application??? I had a tough time finding 600W steam Cylinder Oil and had to "Special Order" 20 gallons !!!
WHAT IS THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT LUBE OILS ???
