Re: Type of Oil in '24 Star?

manual just says replace oil every 50 miles...no grade mentioned...but...summer can be 30 weight and winter 10 or 20 w 30 makes sense. use detergent if motor is rebuilt and maybe conside non detergent if engine is well run or worn...does anyone disagree????

Straight 30 it is then, that's what I had used in my Model T's and just wanted to be sure.

Thanks Gary!
