    My old man ran 50wt Kendall in everything he built, he swore by it, I guess it just comes natural to me, I can't find Kendall so I use Valvoline Racing.

    20-50 do you run a cooler and do you run your boat long distances , ski boat or what ?

    You couldn't pay me to run straight 50 wt.

    Pennzoil 20w-50 racing oil, they are the only ones that still put zinc in their oil! Valvoline 20w-50 is my second choice if I can't find the first. Just my .02!

    The "only ones"...sure about that?
    I'm pretty sure any off road racing oil like Valvoline VR1 Racing still has a good level of zinc.
    Brad Penn oils also have it.
