Back in the 50s, my brother ran Royal Triton in his '57 Buick.
He was always proud of the fact that his oil always looked better than mine in my '57 Chevy.

My oil came out dirty looking after 2000 miles but his still had some color to it and looked much cleaner.

I had just gotten out of mechanic's school and suggested we put valve cover gaskets on, as they both had a small leak.

My Chevy was as clean as could be inside, but his Buick was a mess!!!

The Royal Triton wasn't cleaning anything!!

He changed to Pennzoil, as I used and his oil came out dirty next time also.

I also have used detergent oil in all of my vehicles, even my '33 Chevy.

Crud under a slip in bearing should cause more wear on it, which I don't believe happens. So detergent oil isn't going to affect bearings. And if crud is keeping your rings against the cylinder wall, then you need new rings anyway.
But that is just my opine....
Any man that thinks he is too old to learn new things, probably always was....
