Subject:
OT Oil for old garden tractor

Chuck Bjorgen
The manual for my 25 year-old Sears garden tractor specifies regular 30 weight oil for regular warm weather use. It also allows for 5w-30 for below zero, nothing I would ever use it for. I read some recommendations that the new synthetics are better for small engines (mine is 5hp). Standard 30 weight is getting hard to find. Any recommendations?
