Two new oiling questions

Garry Phelps

Recommended Posts

I recall some time back a debate about the best engine oil and I cant recall the outcome. What is the best engine oil for the V12 engines? Also what oil should I use to oil the water pumps and distributor or any other oiling or greasing points?

thanks GP

Also I have pictures I,d like to share but dont know how!?

An other forum on Flathead V 8s asked the same question and someone replied that Castrol Syntec SAE 20w-50 was a good oil that contained zinc "for flat tappet cam Engines". Contains 1200 ppm zinc and is full synthetic.
