1944 ford 2n: What type of oil to use? and whats the oil pressure should be?

Nathanial I just bought a 1944 ford 2n, it burns some oil so I'm keeping an eye on how often i need to fill it. so I'm just wondering what type would be best to use and what the oil pressure should be at? and if i should use an additive if that's advisable.

Bob G I use 10/30 or 10/40. If oil pressure is on low side maybe 10/50.
Oil pressure hot 10 or there about for cold more like 35 40.
I don't think any of the modern oils need an additive. JMHO

mark sr I use 20w50 in my NAA and back when it was running I used the same in my flathead V8. If I lived in a colder climate I'd probably use a thinner oil.
Nathanial thanks for the help the info was very helpful
