All of the above hold 1/2 QT. more than the regular filter, resulting in a 5QT. oil change.

From Facebook TFFN page, I've been told Fram PH-8A and Motorcraft FL1A
With those filters you only have a 4 1/2 QT. oil change.
The filters i listed are for a Ford industrial engine, thus they hold another 1/2 QT. of oil, resulting in a 5 QT. oil change.

I think one of the great things abt these co.s is they have drainback models. The way the filters sit on the i6 helps me choose them instead. Capacity is nice too. Even the Amisol system is nother alternative remote, double if U want, etc).

I was watching "Engine Masters" on Youtube, and they were progressively removing oil out of an engine that was on a dyno and doing runs...

Interesting part starts around the 10 minute mark...but at the 12 min. mark things get super weird!

15W50 Mobile 1. Plenty of zinc. $23 at Walmart on Rollback. 5 quart jug.
You only need 10W-30 on a well built engine.
I like Brad-Penn semi synthetic racing oil 10W-30. It has all the good additives, zinc, phosphorus & also has detergent for street driving.

The manual of my 68 says to use 15W40, I also bought Mobile 1 15W50 (but haven't run it yet) because of availability and the zinc content for my flat tappet. It also consider changing to a lower grade oil to match the specification in the manual.

I also found the Brad Penn 15W40 synthetic and the Joe Gibbs HR5 15W40 synthetic, both high in zinc. Anyone any thoughts on these two in comparison?
