    *BRAD PENN Oil Substitute*

     



    I have a 350 sbc with double hump heads, aluminum high rise with Demon 625 carb, nice cam, Sanderson headers connected to flow masters. I'm running Brad Penn SAE 20W-50 Partial Synthetic high performance oil in. This is what the previous own was running. I can not get the oil locally. What other oil would be a good substitute?

    Much of the stuff that's "Online Only" can be purchased for in store pickup at your local store, shipped in free with their normal orders. WalMart is trying to be the second Amazon.

    There are flat tappet cams in both the 66 Mustang I gave my grandson and my 76 Vette and they both run Penz hi mileage and no additives. I rebuilt the 289 in the Mustang in 79 and put a healthy Comp cam in about 10 years ago. I will replace the cam in the Vette later this year and I'll zddp for break in and after that I'm not sure.
    I personally think it's more to do with the quality of the parts and too heavy spring pressure than the lack of zddp.

    That is correct Ken. Be careful where you buy parts from... Also, the inside clearances is responsible to keep the oiling system to the various parts evenly. Most people forget the cam bearing clearances, compared to the other parts. To loose on the bottom, and you starve the top... Easy as that...

    The cam, lifters, and springs for the Vette are from Howard's. Them and Isky are about all that I trust.

    Those are good. I'm still running my Crane cam in my merc engine. No problems either. 28,000 miles on that. Things are changing today at a rate that's a little hard to keep up with. Have to check everything to be sure where it's made. And how it was made.

    The quart bottle the previous owner showed me did not say Green Oil. What is Green Oil?

    On my flat tappet hemi cam from Isky, they name Brad Penn specifically for use, I have always used it and I would stick with it especially as many problems that have been seen, you can also get it on ebay pretty cheap. Best of luck

    I started running Brad Penn in my pulling engines with the big lift cams to help prolong the life back in 06. The pros were recommending it and they still run it even with their high dollar roller set ups.
