Engine Oil

Ray Fleishour Bought a 1953 Farmall Super C. Is it proper to use Non-detergent motor oil when I change oil and filter? I've been told that if I use regular car SAE 30 weight motor oil, I could ruin the engine.

Thanks for any help.

J Depends,if the enigne has recently been overhauled or has had reglar detergnet oil in it for quite sometime,then the regular detergent oil will be fine.However if its real gunky inside then stick with the non detergent.Detergent oil will loosen sludeg and get into the oil passages and clog up the system and burn up your engine.
Ray Fleishour Thanks for the good advise. That makes sense. Im replacing the drain pan gasket; I'll take a look inside the crankshaft area and possibly in the valve cover area.
Again, thanks!
