This low detergent engine oil intended for vehicles manufactured between 1920 and 1950. Shelsley Light is a multigrade 20W60 oil specifically designed for prewar vehicles originally specifying a 'Light' Grade Oil or a SAE 20 or 30.
It is suitable for small capacity vintage engines relying totally on splash lubrication. As well as suitable for small capacity sleeve valve engined cars such as Minerva, Mors, Knight and Daimler. 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 "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
