To bring this thread to a happy conclusion.

I have been running Red Line 10w-40 for a few hundred miles now with no apparent adverse side effects. Looking at the oil on the dip-stick I would have to say that it looks really good.

On a related note: I found that even after 37 years the factory service bulletin to drill the air bleed hole in the aux housing had NOT been done to JH 12827. I drilled the hole and now get oil pressure within about 5 seconds of start-up. Without the hole I was looking at 0 pressure for as much as 30 seconds.
