Looking for an oil recommendation

The freshen of my 632 is just about finished. I'm not 100% happy with the 20W-50 PennGrade 1 I was using. Pressure was fine as were the bearings but the pushrods showed some slight burning. It is an N/A injected alky setup. Any recommendations?

I have heard good things about Shaeffer's but it doesn't appear to be available in Australia. I ended up going with LAT 20W-50 semi-synthetic.

ILL BET its not the oils fault, better switch to 50w brad penn, or go over the oiling
