Ah yes, the Lucas is available here as well, but much more expensive. I know the Lucas should have a higher ZDDP content (I believe around 2000 PPM), this MPM stuff runs around 1200 PPM I believe. We'll see, it might still be 'overkill' with the oil bath cam and relatively low pressure valve springs.
But I'd rather spend a little more on oil than on a new camshaft and lifters..
You all now the saying "Pay a little now or pay a whole lot more later". With these engine lasting almost forever I would hate to tear it down due to the wrong oil being used.
