I've changed the plugs and wires with NGK BP6ES plugs and Bosch wires, going to change oil with Shell 15w-40 diesel engine oil. Will this be good for the car? Sorry for all the questions, i'm a newbie to the classics
Get the rotella diesel 15w 40. it is good for these engines.

some say (quote from top gear), that webers are better than zenith but others say once zenith are set they are great.
pay attention on the plugs, don't install platinum or anything like that, i did on mine and worked like garbage. i know run champion.

ask as many questions as you want, the forum is here for that.
