SHELSLEY MEDIUM is a premium mineral, 25W-70, 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 MEDIUM is suitable for vehicles that originally specified a SAE 40 monograde grade engine oil fitted with/ without an engine oil filter. Those vehicles that require a higher detergency should use Penrite Classic Medium Engine Oil.
SHELSLEY MEDIUM is suitable for larger engined vintage and pre-war vehicles which have either troughs or dipper type lubricating systems, or early types of pressure feed systems. It is also suitable for those employing total loss oiling systems and for larger capacity sleeve valve engined cars such as Minerva, Mors, Knight and Daimler. Can be used for vehicles operating where moderate ambient temperatures will be experienced.
SHELSLEY MEDIUM 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 MEDIUM 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. It 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.
