I run Valvoline in my cars, whatever weight the manufacturer recommends.  10W40 in the AMX and Rogue 390s.  In my diesel truck I run 15W40 Mobil Delvac.  Just pulled the valve covers to replace injectors at 180K and the engine looks new inside.  In my air-cooled engines, I run a straight 30, non-detergent oil, whatever brand I can find when I need it.

Finally got a new computer so I'm trying my first video download of a race between Ketchum and Yves. I was trying to send this last year to show Yves spinning. Hope it works. Garry

Thank You Yves!
Going back to Macon speedway this Saturday with a more appropriate gear and see what it will do again in Sportsman.
Then next weekend a Vintage double header at Farmer City Friday and Charleston Saturday.
A couple more Fairbury photos I found.

 "I think you would be extremely surprised on the accuracy of the valve seats, deck height, cam lobes, and crank angles mentioned."
 
 Whenever I've bothered to confirm these things in the past I was as shocked as you were to discover how much flex and compression the valvetrain experiences when subjected to heavy spring loads. Hopefully in you're case everything is as exact as expected.
