Substitute for 600wt "Steam Cylinder Oil" used on Durant cars

OK, I've just bought a 26 Star R and need to grease up the springs all around due to the rust on them. The manual calls for 600 wt Steam Cylinder Oil and this site tells me that I need to order it from CA or TX or get 5 gallons in a jobber pail if I can find one. So, two questions: (1) Is there a substitute for this oil, and (2)does anyone know where I can pick this oil or the substitute up? I'd rather work on it this weekend than next weekend and do not want to pay for shipping of something this heavy.

Thanks to everyone!

Any Model T supplier carries a substitute in quarts but do read the thread.

This is the oil I found that is supposed to be the same (I hope). It is the same weight and appears to be for the same purpose. Gene
