Oiling cylinders

Postby Trevor » Tue Sep 17, 2013 2:12 pm

Just picked up a '56 Chevy wagon that hasn't ran in 10+years. It's not locked up but was wondering what I should spray in the cylinders before I get it running. Oil, marvel mystery oil, wd40 etc?

We always used a 75/25 mixture of trans fluid and diesel fuel on tractors,lubes up the top end and helps the rings seal up.
