This might help you.


I don't see the oil you mention on this list.  I'm using the 15W50 - which 
specifically mentions use in flat tappet applications.

I HAVE - in the past - used the 5W40 Turbo Diesel Truck oil with no known 
ill effects.

There are folks on VV who seem to be experts on oil, so you are very likely 
to get more pertinent information from some of them.

Later, JR
