1930 Century 6 oil question


Recommended Posts

Question, did you clean all of the engine of all the old oil? If the answer is yes. Then I would use a 20-50 detergent oil. I have 20 thousand miles on my 1936 Huppn and that is what i used after i rebuilt the engine. The reason people do not use a detergent oil without a rebuild is that a detergent oil will clean all the slug out of the engine and clog the screen in the oil pan. When this happens, you will kill the rods bearings , which are made of babbit.
