i actually recommend 5W30, ive found in a few cases on these motors 0W20, and 5W20, which is pretty much the same thing will seem past the rings a little.

I use Mobil 1 in my Mach. But Royal Purple at the parts store is getting almost as cheap as Mobil 1 now so I will probably be switching soon. Change out your diff. fluid with Royal Purple while you are under there.

Run it for awhile then drop your pan and check it out and clean it. Doubt you will find anything in there though. Unless you have been using quaker state.
