SHELSLEY LIGHT is a premium mineral, 20W-60, high zinc, very low detergent engine oil designed specifically for petrol, kerosene and diesel fuelled vintage, pre-war and post war vehicles manufactured to 1950. It features a double layer of engine wear protection with high zinc and increased operating temperature viscosity over monograde oils.
SHELSLEY LIGHT is suitable for vehicles that originally specified a SAE 30 monograde grade engine oil fitted with/ without an engine oil filter. Those vehicles that require a higher detergency should use Penrite Classic Light Engine Oil.
SHELSLEY LIGHT is ideal for use in early vintage (pre 1950) motorcycles, incorporating sight glasses, pilgrim oil pumps and total loss lubrication systems. It is suitable for use in motorcycles fitted with a wet clutch
SHELSLEY LIGHT contains a special additive pack that suits vintage vehicles of the era and is compatible with grades that were originally specified. This oil exceeds the specification requirements of the original oils required during this period hence offering a greater level of engine protection compared to original oils.
SHELSLEY LIGHT is an API SC/CC grade oil that features very low detergent levels and contains HIGH ZINC levels for added anti-wear protection for older engines. The oil also contains a “Tacky Additive” so that when vehicles are laid up, the engine oil doesn’t run off the internal surfaces. This combined with an increased level of rust inhibitor, provides protection against corrosion and deterioration when the engine is not used or in storage.
