Re: oil question

The only thing I can say is to try it and see what happens. I have heard good and bad about switching to synthetics on ANY type engine, but never experienced any problems with my lawnmower. my 1971 Dodge Demon, my 1995 Chevy truck, my 1993 Chevy van, or anything else I owned (sorry, no Fords) when switching to synthetic.
