I've been using a Lucasoil product that's a zinc additive for modern 
oil in flat tappet engines, like ours. IIRC, a bottle costs about $10 
and half a bottle does 1 Type 3 engine oil change.

Google: Lucas TB Zinc-Plus

That will get you to the Lucas site, with a full description, 
including a tech sheet with zinc content.
