Article 1282 - Change in Lubricating Oil Specifications

TSB #85 - February 9, 1968
(1967-1968 242 and 363 CID Ford Dorset Diesel Engines)


Multi-viscosity lubricating oils meeting Ford Specification ESE-M2C101-B may now be used in the subject engines (single-viscosity oils only were formerly specified). Single viscosity oils may still be used, if they meet Specification ESE-M2C101-B rather than the Military Specification MIL-L-2104A (S-l) formerly specified. Use the temperature-viscosity chart given below for crankcase refill:
