I like the final drive ratios better on the monolevers. Monolever easier to service and sooner or later you are going to have a drive shaft failure on the paralever.

I would try running 20-50 and start with the oil fill level at 2\3 full. Monitor consumption. If she drops to 1\2 full I would still monitor consumption at that level for a while.

+1 on R100RT Mark's idea.

I do the poormans version. I save all my old aluminum sealing washers, give them a wack or two with a hammer on the vice and I can usually get the right thickness.
