Hi Phil, After further reading, I can't recommend trying to formulate your own brew. Oil engineers spend their careers doing this.

Since too much ZDDP can chemically attack metals, (more than .20%), and we don't know how much is in modern SM oils, (probably under .05%), there's no way to know how much to add. Moss Motors sells ZDDPlus FWIW.

Unless you are installing new or re-ground cams this is not a critical issue. Just use the GTX for Classic Cars or Valvoline VR1 at your next oil change. No worries.
