I was looking over the oil analysis section and noticed that these engines have trouble with high lead content. Even with a Amsoil. So my situation is I have 195k on the motor and it runs extremly well with no noticable oil use or leaks. Would a good dino oil changed every 3000 miles be the best for this motor or should I use mobil one and change every 6 to 7 thousand miles, I will for sure use the motorcraft filter. Thanks for the input.
Just keep doing what you are doing.
If all runs well at 195,000 miles, it might be best to just keep doing whatever got it this far. Since it's a Ford, Motorcraft would be my first choice of filter too. Oil? What have you been using, for how long? If you've been changing a good dino every 3K, it may be safest to stick with that.

Al: it seems that great minds run in the same gutter.
