I sure most of you have heard about zink being removed from engine oil.
Are any of you using a supplement in your older motors??

I had been using Rotella but now they have removed it as well. Wayne at Quality engine has an oil with zinc so I guess I will have to go and see him. I need to change oil on the roadster before nest week. :)

I just read, on the Ford Barn I think it was a couple days ago, that for a flathead use the regular oil and add STP.  It has all the zink and additives you need.
