I use Wix filters too, but Amsoil oil synthetic 10-40 (Rod Oil)which has zinc in it also in my 67 Dodge. Use the Zinc (4oz)  in the 77 which has the original engine with regular 10-30 oil. It's hard to find oil with zinc already added, but there are plenty of manufacturers that provide the zinc to add to any oil.
