step on starter 1/2 turn thats all. 10-40 Napa oil.

Next oil change try 5w-30. When it hits 20, Liz will like it even better.

Hey Bud what about synthetics some say yes or no or
some say it dont matter. some say use cheap stuff.
just want it to have a "cat treat" bottom line, I
think nothing will hurt these things compared to
what they had back then. I do know when a kid
it was smokin Studebakers even at only 40,000 miles
burnt valves all the time in the shop. Now a days
thats all gone. The no oil pressure Plymouths.
Knockin babbit pounder Chevys thing of the past now
with better oils. Even in my life when a teen, a 100 miles in a T with out roadside "de shimming" was the normal. Now a days thats a thing of the past or maybe we were the stupid ones thinking
50 or 60 wt oil was better. Remembering one guy useing 90wt gear oil? That was the thinking back then. All these years I too was wrong. 5w 30 winter and maybe 20-40 summer. I just want to be
good to it, an it'll be good to me thats all.

You want your oil hot? Attach one of these heating pads to your oil pan!
