    What oil after rebuild?

    Right guys the car is almost rebuilt, a step by step post is on the way but for now i need to know what oil I should put in for the intial bedding in period?

    I've rebuilt plenty of engines and have always used 10-40 semi synth as i find it a good all rounder and then after 500 -1000 miles put the recemmended in.
    I've been doing some googling and searching on here but there seems to be mixed responses. This has probably been the most expensive and time consuming rebuild I've ever done and want to get it right.

    Thanks in advance.

    I always use 10w-40 to be honest, alot of others will probably say to use 5w-40, but both are fine i believe.

    Thanks mate, I've got a big drum of 10-40 so that will do the trick. Getting nervous now, I hate starting them for the first time.
