I've just recently started running VR1 in my '69 after reading about all the oil issues.
Interesting, I'm currently running non-synthetic VR1 as well. Coming up on my first change since FI and Cam....hopefully it's coming back if it really did get pulled.

I heard the same. In fact that's what my shop was going to swap mine out for during the cam install (but we forgot ).
