Best modern oil
#1
With all the modern Oils what does everyone else use for our older engines? I figured for my 351C with 71,000 miles I'd use Valvoline..... just curious is there something better.

I always use Castrol. I personally think as long as you use a good name brand oil you should be good. No Wal-Mart brand oil type stuff lol.

As long as it does NOT say energy conserving on it you are fine. They have taken all the good stuff our old motors need to lubricate out if it says energy conserving, It is best for the newer roller motors. I use Castrol as well really good luck with the stuff.








I am just here to eat my lunch and screw stuff up!!!!!Haha

Valvoline VR1. If you are using a different valvoline oil designed for modern car engines you should use a ZDDP additive.

Whatevers on sale with a shot of Marvel Mystery Oil. Name brand oils though and not Walmart or Orielly kind. Usually Castrol is on the lower priced of the 4 brands I juggle between. Sorry, but with 8 vhicles and all needing service around the same time, gotta do it this way. My Motorcycle oils are @ $8 a qt. Sad Always with the Marvel Mystery Oil though. Love this stuff just because. Not me but this guy sure knows how to party!

Good question!

Bob is the Oil Guy has the answer and he's not trying to sell us anything...but it is everything you ever wanted to know about oil, oil change intervals, oil analysis from your oil change, oil bypass filters,
fuel/ oil additives, oil stability & shearing, etc.

Good info on his site. Here's the Link:

Bob is also apparently a multi-millionare, as he uses his Ferrari Enzo, Lamborghini, and Maybach cars as examples many times lol.

I use Brad Penn racing number 009-7158. It has all the good stuff in it that the flat tappet cam needs.

Maybe he made his fortune in oil. Arrharhar.

If I were a multi-millionaire I think I'd run a forum too to keep me in touch with reality.
