Re: What Oil Are You Running?
10 to 20 miles should be enough to heat the engine up and get rid of most of the condensation. What temperature thermostat are you running ? I would stick a 195 deg one in there for the type of driving you do.
As far as oil goes, diesel oils have also lost a lot of the additives. Since the diesels now have to use emmissions devices such as particulate filters, the oil had to get cleaned up just like the car oil.
I know its a little pricy, but I would use the Joe Gibbs Racing Hot Rod oil. It is a synthetic oil, but has all of the anti wear properties for flat tappet cams. It also is supposed to have a lot of corrosion inhibitors for cars like yours that are not driven a lot. I think it's available in 10w30 and 15w50, I would use the 10w30.
Just my opinion,
