Mobil 1 10-40 ever since the first 10 hr service back in 1996! 15 years of hard 36 mph skiing and it still runs perfect.

Honda GN4 is a INCREDIBLE conventional oil. I use it in everything but the car & truck the only reason I do not use it in there is because it is a little pricey.

with the all roller assembly I would start the engine, make sure everything is getting oil at the rockers and pressure gauge, set lash if needed ( Comp ProMag 1.6 :-) shut it down drain the Dino oil and refill using synthetic rotella 10-40 or the Valvoline VR and flat foot the engine. Only used WIX filters too
