My engine is so close to it's first start - waiting on 6 new shims which I hope will arrive this week.  So: This morning I went over to my Auto-shop and got new plugs, 2 oil filters, a jug of coolant and a couple of jugs of Shell Rotella 10/30.  Guy says something like:  "You've been using 20/50 haven't you"?    "Ya, but going lighter now."   "Good thing", he says.  "We can't get 20/50 and might not 'till Spring".
Apparently, Shell is having issues with product component availability and they (Shell rep.) doesn't know when 20/50 will be back on the shelves. 
I guess it's was a good time to rebuild and switch to the light weight !
Maybe I should stock-up on my "Glen."

Are there any concerns about your chosen type and grade of oil withstanding the high loads present in the transmission?
