I use Joe Gibbs HR2 Dino for the notch and DT50 synthetic for the T4 engine,
as it was specifically developed for that and Jake Raby would probably never
talk to me again if I didnt.

I AM very happy with the Gibbs syth DT50 though, Great oil pressure even
when the engine is good and toasty!

Amsoil still advertises and sells 16 oz. bottles of Engine Oil with ZDDP.

I tried to pin down the engineers on "how much? - the ratio?" of ZDDP was
in their oil.
"Proprietary information.". .. was their answer.

So ......  "How much ZDDP is enough?'

The last time I checked with an Amsoil distributor, it was over $112.00 per
case of 12.

Does anybody have an answer or a product that would be "kinder lubricant"
for our 46-to-59 year old engins?

IF we had hoarded oil with the proper amount of ZDDP in it, would the
additives still be viable?
