10w40 is right.castrol magnatec, dont get a cheap brand, oils one thing you dont scrimp on. had 5w40 between services and found it too light, tappets are noisier.

You can use 5w30, 10w30, 10w40 & 5w40 etc. All comes down to what you can afford & what's available in your market. Most here run 5w30 & 10w40. I run Castrol Edge 5w30. If you can afford it run a fully synthetic.
