    Chevrolette oil enquiry

    Hi, I have just imported a 1962 Chevrolet corvette, the engine is original, good, and strong, I have been advised because of the age of the vehicle it is reccomended to use 10w 30 as the viscosity grade for an older american V8 engine as it offers a higher flow rate to promote cooling, would you advise this grade of oil, any help is appreciated, as I want to protect my old engine....Thanks

    Hi Alan

    A 10w-30 could be a good choice, but there are a couple of things to be careful about. In over 50 years, I would have thought there would be some engine wear, which could lead to low oil pressure or high oil consumption with a 10w-30. Has the engine ever been rebuilt?

    Cheers

    Tim

    Hi Tim,
    Sorry for the late reply, I have been working overseas, I do not know if the engine has ever been rebuilt as I had very little history when I had it imported, the engine seems strong and no noises, plus drives very nice.

    Regards
    Alan

    Hi Alan

    In that case the Motul 4000 or Fuchs Universal should be good options.
