Chris: I am using the Union 20W/50 you folks recommended and plan on changing to synthetic oil when I get to 1,000 miles. I do have a couple of oil drips that appear to plague FEs, even the new aluminum ones, like mine. I was told that as I got more miles on the engine the leaks might stop, especially on the rear main. Well, I now have about 600 miles on it, with no changes. Is it going to get any worse with synthetic oil? Even though I don't think much of Exxon as a corporation, I am thinking seriously about using Mobile 1. Thanks for your help. Rich
