    If engine is dohc or sohc then I would use 5w30 or 10w30 oil.

    Or you can try add mechanical oil gauge and check oil pressure if it low then you could bump to little thicker.
  3. I'm thinking about going with a thick one but not sure if penzoil or another one

    I always ran 10-30w in my 22r, put 265,000 on it and still got the motor in the garage, swapped it out for a bit more power. Always used Valvoline or castrol dino oil, 50 lbs on the gauge all the time, never burned or leaked, good luck, Matt
