/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif Don't be taken in by that old adage: "Heavier oil is MORE oil." The engine actually lubricates better with an oil which is right for it, and in your case that means 10W-30, 20W-30, or 10W-40. A heavier oil will not actually work as well, ESPECIALLY since the long suction pipe on that AMC makes oil flow to the pump a problem to begin with. We used to run 20W-50 in race cars, but that was an extreme application and we did not have hydraulic lifters./wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif Many cars with hydraulic lifters were non-adjustable.....Chryslers were for years.....the GM stuff always had adjustable rocker arm stands and as some one mentioned you adjusted to zero click then add 3/4 turn......that's what the factory said to do.....those of us who build engines knew that 1/2 turn was a lot better./wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif
