ONLY if you're using single-weight Aeroshell.
Does not have to be AeroShell. (just has to be SAE 50 wt oil....not multigrade. See the engine type cert.)
Doubtless there will be some nay-sayer who will point out that TCM's change in the type cert. does not automatically transfer to the engine's installation in a C-170, nor does it authorize the change of red-line on the Cessna Oil Temp gauge. (But I'd still operate at the higher limit and be happy about it.)
