Which oil to use in hot climes

Post by Doug G » Thu Dec 08, 2016 19:26

Which grade oil is best to use in hot climes i.e. 80ºF year round in a circa 1973 998cc Mini Moke?

Is in better to use 'normal' oil or a 'synthetic' oil ?

Thanks for the links Dean, I'd forgotten.

Old age creeping up and all that. :lol:

PS I calculate I was about 17, when my Mini Moke was manufactured. Wish I'd had it then. 8)

Put a little oil on it and you'll be ok. Try bathing in oil it might free up those joints.
