I remember using 20w60. It felt like there's a Sumo wrestler in the passenger seat.
The manual I have says 4 liters of 5W30 SE to SJ grade. I suggest running a minimum SJ synthetic 5W30, check your stick after 3.5 liters though.
Also Fram PH3614 or a Wix 51348 filter fits my F6A 1999 DB52T.
Here is some useful info for the DB52T:

51348 - WIX is what my 1995 F6A DD51T took for those loooking
x2 on the WIX 51348. Here is some clarification on oil filters at least regarding the 90's model F6A motors. I used my handy thread gauges and measured the thread pitch on my filter housing on my 1995 Carry 4x4 and it was a standard 3/4x16 pitch and NOT M20x1.5 metric threads like mentioned earlier in this thread. You would think so but its not. Even though I measured the filter housing threads I bought both a metric and standard threaded filters and when I threaded the M20x1.5 filter it was so loose there is no way you would think it was right. It would have definitely blown off! The proper 3/4x16 threaded filter threaded on perfect and went on tight. Its a little larger diameter filter but the seal fits perfect on the filter housing and similar flow rates as the stock filter and more filter capacity. I used 3 qts. of valvoline 10w-30 regular oil and a WIX 51348 filter.
On oil there are Atv oils that don't have to meet epa standards, that's what I put in.
I have heard this before and switch my Toyota Camry to 15w40 earlier this year and it would barely start and struggled to perform. Once the oil was drained and 5w30 went back in the problem went away. I wonder how these small 550 or 660 engines do with it. I heard of people running 15w40 in lawnmowers also.
Not saying that you are wrong or right just sharing my recent experience.
Diesel oil should not be anywhere near these engines. They are roller cam, OHC. The zinc was needed to keep flat tappet cam, pushrod engines lubricated. These do not require the zinc and the oil is much too heavy.
It is also a misconception these days that Rotella is best for ZDDP. Rotella complied with modern ratings quite a few years ago and ZDDP is below 800 PPM now. Valvoline VR1 has 1,200 PPM but is only available in 20W50 and bars leak sells an addative that will make 1,5-800 PPM depending on base oil content. But again, is not needed/ recomended for an F5A/F6A/K6A engine at all.
