Talking Big Stover main bearings

Hello All, I have a big Stover with oil cup main bearings, the engine is never worked and runs about 100 or so rpm. What type of oil would you use in the mains, it has mop string in the oil wells. Thanks for the help.

Default Re: Big Stover main bearings

I use Casrtol SAE 70 wt. everywhere on my flywheel engines during the summer because they run real slow. Hard to turn over though in cold weather. I seem to remember reading somewhere wt. designations are different between motor oil and gear oil. Anyone?
