Very simply, old engines need old (formula) oils.  
I use Valvoline VR-1 racing oil.   Last time I got some, I just used Amazon to get it.


This is what I will keep using on a new :) L24. Anywhere else than Amazon?


Synthetic more prone to leaking by older style seals and gaskets I'm convinced

You might try independent auto parts stores, but there is a chance the high ZDDP oils are not available in California auto parts stores.

You could always buy a bottle of ZDDP oil additive. 1 bottle every 4-5 quarts. 9.95$ US.
