    Default 1950 Ford 8N Multi-Grade Oil Advise Needed

    What multi-grade engine oil would you use in an 8N Ford tractor that would be good for all year usage? I'm thinking maybe Rotella or Delo 400 in 15W-40. What think y'all? This tractor doesn't get used more than about 10 to 15 hours per year, if that much.

    Thanks in advance,
    Tim

    any 15w40 c rated oil will be light years ahead of what was available in the 30's thru the 50's.

    even walmart 15w40.. which is what I run mostly.. ( and 15w40 is run in most of my machines )

    We have too much gun control.
    What we need is more idiot control.
