i seriously doubt any oil used really matters in a motor thats old
enough to need oiling.......
i have used 10 w 30 om some machine motors in the past none ever
failed, with or without oiling........
old stuff was designed so well much didnt matter
now stuff is designed so cheap it cant even be oiled......
I do belive the older motors did need oiling. At least, the ones I've worked
on did. Drilling your own oil holes is (I think) a good idea. If you don't
get metal chips in there.
Farm supply places, they might have grease gun tips with a syring needle. So
you can inject some grease into CV joints. Or, on the farm, the permanant
lube joints on farm equipment. That are not made to be greasable, but
totally expensive and labor consuming to replace.
