I'll add my usual different opinion on oil. I've used Mobil 1 Delvac 15x40 in 
my two old 617s for around 20 years. Neither one has had the head off nor any 
engine problems. One has around 425,000 miles and the other around 360,000 
miles. I tried the other oils at first (Delo, Shell, etc.), but Delvac kept the 
oil pressure slightly higher when hot, was fine in the Winter (although I live 
in the Atlanta area, but have seen some cold), and really keeps the soot and 
dirt in circulation so it all drains out at the oil change. I always encourage 
people to use what works for them. I'm just passing on what has worked for 
years for me. And yes I used to drive a lot so I changed oil every 3K and that 
was sometimes every 1.5-2 months.
