30wt will not hurt an older chev in line engine. The main problem with 30 wt is it does not flow well at cold temps and there for the splash system of lubrication does not function well. I have been running 10/30 in my 52 and find that it works very well. As for zinc, it is an additive that is not needed in the engines that we run. I think that if you do a little research you will find that there was no zinc additive at the time these engines were brand new. As said there has been a lot of discussion about Zinc. I do not worry about it with this engine. 50 wt would be excessively heavy.
