Penrite Shelsley Light 20w60 is a very low detergent engine oil intended for vehicles manufactured between 1920 and 1950. The oil contains additional corrosion inhibitor to protect against rust and corrosion during lay-up and over non-use periods.
A premium mineral, high zinc, very low detergent oil designed specifically for petrol and diesel fuelled vintage, pre war and post war vehicles manufactured before 1950. It features a double layer of engine wear protection with high zinc and increased operating temperature viscosity over monograde engine oils
Meets API SC/CC
Recommended for use in vintage passenger cars, motorcycles, 4WD's, light and heavy duty commercial vehicles that originally specified an SAE20 or 30 monograde grade engine oil and were fitted with or without an engine oil filter. It is suitable for small capacity vintage engines relying totally on splash lubrication. Also suitable for small capacity sleeve valve engined cars such as Minerva, Mors, Knight and Daimler.
It is ideal for use in early vintage (pre 1950) motorcycles, incorporating sight glasses, pilgrim oil pumps and total loss lubrication systems. It can also be used for vehicles operating where cooler ambient temperatures will be experienced.
Formulated to give much improved low temperature pumpability while improving operating temperature wear protection
Extends bearing and gear life by minimising wear and shock loads
Minimises sludge build up, bearing corrosion and piston ring sticking through the use of selected additive technology
Reduces foaming by using an effective anti-foam agent
Optimised zinc levels for wear protection
Maintains oil pressure and reduces oil consumption
