Err, I use Honda or Kreidler oil. Doesn't say what sort of oil it is on
the flask. 15W40 or 10W40 will do fine tho'.

It's an old engine. Oil has become better, premix used to be 1 : 25. Now
it's 1 : 50. I don't know how good this synthetic oil from Amsoil is,
but I wouldn't go lower then 1 : 50. I use a synthetic oil from Texaco
at about 1 : 40.

Sounds good. As long as the viscosity is not too high.

Always tighten the head crosswise. I've never used a torque wrench
myself. Just don't tighten it too much.
