    Motor? Non detergent straight 30 is what I run initially to seat the rings and wear the cam in.

    Last one I used Kendall 15-40 Diesel with a bottle of Zinc. I almosty always use 15-40 diesel oil except when it is a real tight motor. Then I will run a 5-30 with Zinc.

    Either that or straight wt VR1. If I could find either, I'd run Pep Boys brand straight 30 or 40, or 50. What ever weight the engine wants or needs. If I was really worried about it, I might use a quart of Lucas Fortifier as my "over fill" quart.
    Running a "break in oil" is close to laughable. Ever notice that many of the break in oils are multi weight? INCLUDING COMP CAMS BREAK IN OIL WTF? Who needs or even wants a multi weight break in oil? You plan on breaking in and flushing this thing, or running it for a summer on this oil. I could care less, and in fact don't even want a multi weight for break in of a flat tappet cam!!

    MOST straight were not that effected by the EPA laws. Still aren't. The heavier straight weights like 40 and heavier were hardly effected if at all.

    I have better things to do with my money than buy some "break in" oil that will be in there for less than an hour.

    Is this a stab in my ass BOB? Did not say my name but talked all around it. Wait till we cross paths. I will fix you Buddy. I use muti weight or even straight 30. Now that I have Kendall Oil back that is all I use. The deal I have is none of their oil cost me over $2.90 a qt. That is shipped. So I use what ever I grab off a shelf and go with it. If I had to pay BIG Bucks like you I would use the cheap chit. But since I am a Baller I use the Best.

    I don't get it. Why do some people read more in some post than is actually there? I guess I don't read between the lines.

    I didn't see your post that way, don't think you read mine that way.

    I wasn't so much refering to people that choose a multi weight oil for break in, as much as oil compamies AND CAM COMPANIES that sell a multi weight break in oil.
    As for using a dieselm oil for break in, eh. I think there are better choices on the shelf, but there are much worse. As an oil to run on a regular basis, not a big fan.
