I like 'old school' but I would probably recommend 0-20 motor oil and a quart of marvel mystery oil instead of a quart of oil. Just a thought. Years ago(yeah , I'm THAT old) we didn't have '0' weight oil available for stuff like this....And be patient , don't go over 2K RPMs ...run it for maybe 1/2 hour then drain & fill with OEM rec oil & GOOD filter. And follow whatever else goodguy suggests cause , well..........read my profile ....never mind. Good luck.
