Oil api

Post by Brickren » Tue Sep 03, 2019 11:28 am

So I'm trying to find out the proper API designation for oil. I come up with mil spec 2502 b. I got a lot of obsolete numbers but I can't find a straight answer. I see some people are running 20 50 but it's the end of the year and the manual says 30 weight. So I want to find the correct API. I tried searching the forum came up with 400 plus enturies but I still didn't see what I was looking for

Don't know if you read this thread,

IMHO, there are two things to think about here w.r.t. Oil, proper levels of anti-wear
for these Antique engines with solid lifters, and viscosity -- mono or multi-weight.
