   Talking to the engine Guru and proprietor of the local NAPA store the 
other day.  Got to talking about oils for our old engines.  I mentioned 
that it looked like I had a choice between synthetic or Rotella for my 
'69 B.  He showed me some "motorcycle spec" oil for 4-stroke 
motorcycles.  Can't remember the brand but it's a racing oil that he 
says has the % of zinc additive we need.  It also comes in 20W-50 
multi-vis, which is what the GTX I've always run is.  Kind of expensive 
a@ ~$6 a quart but what ain't?

   Any comments?
