« on: June 22, 2016, 09:15:02 PM »
Hello,

What is a good brand and weight of engine oil and central lubrication system oil for 1953 170Vb. Thank you for any help. Sorry, I was unable to find an answer in prior discussions.

The central lubrication system uses 90 Wt gear oil.

I don't know what the 170Vb calls for, but here is what I use in my 220 6cyl gas engine.
I like Brad Penn, Penn Grade 1, Racing oil.  I use the 20W-50 for the engine. It is a partial synthetic.
For the Central Lube System, I use Lucas 80W-90 gear lube. I do not use synthetic for CL system mainly because it has a odor that my wife doesn't like when she goes into the garage.

I re-use my old motor oil in the CL system. (15-W40)
