Man, that sucks (about dropping the valve). I can certainly imagine the first 2 words that you said when it occurred. Nice to hear you recovered, though.

I wonder if there is some Lucas oil stuff i can put in and switch it to 40 weight for the next 50 thousand or so miles.
As for the Lucas, I gave that a shot. It helped, but of course you have to add after each oil change. Would use about 2 quarts between oil changes (3000 mi) I would change at 3000 because it takes almost a year to put that many miles on my truck, unless I was doing a lot of fishing or hauling for home projects.

It was very colorful, glad my son was not within earshot.
