I-4 Conntenental I want to change fluids Oil I was going to use 30W non-detergent.

Re: Fluids

I believe 600 weight oil, originally used in Steam engines are used in the transmission and differential. At least my manual says to use them. 30 weight non-detergent oil for the engine unless it's been rebuilt then a 30 weight detergent can be used from what I found out. You can get the 600 weight oil from Snyder's of Max Model T and Model A suppliers.
