I just got my Rambler fired up today with a rebuilt engine. I am looking for opinions on oil for this 1965 model 232 inline 6. For the initial start up I am running 10w-30 autozone oil and stp filter because this oil will be dumped after break in. I run super tech oil and filters in all my other cars(with the exception of using motorcraft filters on the crown vic) because I am using 4k oci which only takes about 2 to 3 months. All my other cars are newer and have roller lifters, but the Rambler is the old hyd flat tappet. I would prefer dino oil as after engine break in it will get changed twice a year due to lack of mileage. Sorry for the long post. Thanks in advance for any input.
