Oil species for 1968 396

Hi just wondering if anyone has an idea as to the correct type and grade of oil I should be using in my 396. I was told that as it was a older engine I should be using a thicker oil but all it does is burn it off. The dip stick says to us GM-6041-M but I cant find a conversion to SAE grade. Any help would be greatly apreciated.

A good translation of GM 6041-M is "brand-name 10W30 that meets the latest API specs".
