That's interesting. My Perko's are coming off a 1980 Eastward Ho, they may also be originals. Looks like the life span's about 25-30 years, not too shabby.

My Motor is only a couple years old. I'm not sure if synthetic oil was used in the past. Is it too old to switch to synthetic if standard oil was used in the past?

Type of oil used for diesel engine

The owners manual for my Yanmar 2ym15 engine says to use 10w30 oil. Can I use standard automotive oil, or do I need a special oil for diesel/marine applications?
