    I have see some friends that run rotella t in they 10k dollar street car motors that run in the 10s and never have a bit of problem. If you can run the rotella in a newer 16k diesel truck motor then if should work in a lawn mower motor.

And I can show you a Cam from a Kohler, run with diesel motor oil all its life, merely pulled as the engine outlived the generator at 12K hours and one at 2200 hrs with Castrol auto oil. Pulled because the engine was simply done.
      So I guess, Rotella diesel motor oil is the way to proceed from now on ?

      Thanks again for your help !

          Probably 15-40 in a T6 synth Rotella or Delvac diesel rated

              Canada seldom sees 80F constantly so ive been using 10-40 Grand prix castrol or a 5-40 T6 Rotella

                  For you, probably best just go to a place that sells semi trucks. Better prices

                  I personally buy in bulk from a distributor

                      I found the 5 - 40 T6 Rotella @ Canadian Tire. $46.00 for 5 Liters.

                        Pretty high compared to a semi place..... But it depends on whats closest to you.

                          Maybe, but it's $10.00 cheaper than the 5W 50 Castrol Syn. oil I have been using since day one in 2012.

                          One other thing I noticed Today when reading the 5W 50, it say that it has High Zinc content ( Castrol Syn.)

                            I put the 5 W 40 T6 Rotella Syn. oil in my welder today & set the Hz. to 44 Hz. in low idle.
                            I'll try the LN-25 tomorrow on low idle to see if it will kick up to high idle when the trigger is pulled .

                                I see the moderators changed the title. They had me try a couple of different ways but nothing worked. I thank them for putting there time in it.
