It depends entirely on the condition of the engine. If the engine bearings are in good condition, tight and the oil pressure stays up, use a light weight oil such as 5-W-15 or 10-w-30. If the engine oil pressure won't stay up using that viscosity oil, use something a little thicker such as 15-W-40 or even thicker if necessary.
