    Default oil type/brand for JD

    i'm not looking to make this a dreaded oil topic.

    What i would appreciate hearing is what you fellows are using for oil in your J models. i'm not quite ready to add oil, but i do need to start looking around for oil so i have it when the day comes.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm using Valvoline 60wt and it's not cheap. Is your Phillips 66 oil reasonably priced, and if so, where do you get it?

    oil i plan to use, 50w, aviation ashless dispersant, a friend has several quarts left over from when his Dad was alive and had a plane; years ago..... He's giving me the oil.... So, we both think it's pretty cool oil his Dad used in his plane is going in a 27JD like my Dad rode.

    Eric, where do you get your Valvoline ? i guess i could try our local Petroleum outlet supply.

    Believe it or not; Amazon.com. It used to be somewhat common at auto parts stores, but not anymore. . . Now Amazon delivers it to my door
