Default 1976 xj6 s2 oil

G'day ladies and gent.

I've just gotten my hands on a s2 xj6 and she's in need of a good service.

Just wondering what grade of oil would be best?

Also I have no documentation showing it was modified to run on unleaded so am I best off just putting some lead replacement additive in the fuel?

Hi Steve, I use Shell Helix HX5 15w/40 in mine,under $20 at Supercheap Auto for 5 ltr.
As for lead replacement I have been advised both ways,I run it anyway. Can't see what harm it will do. Again 1 ltr is $18 at Supercheap,treats 1000 ltr of fuel.
