I run 10w 40. My oil pressure sucks because my bearings are shi t after the cracked head. It drops to like 2 psi at idle.

If ur engine is worn down like that a thicker oil like 10w40 will actually help fill up the spaces between ur barrings because wen ur barrings get worn down the distance between it and its riding surface is greater resulting in a lack of lubrication

If U can C the top of ur Jeep its not tall enough!

So I should stay at 10w 40?

No I haven't done anything other than switch to the 10w 40. What kind of additive would help?

Try the Lucas with zinc. The add. Will thicken up the oil and the zinc protects internally. I run zinc additive in mine because i have 230k miles. My jeep is quieter (internal noise wise) than my buddys with 130k.

I might try some. I know I need bearings but Im not gonna pull the crank to do the main bearings and I see no point in doing just the rod bearings. I'm gonna get a high volume oil pump to
