(Finally running) - oil equivilants

Post  S.C_07 on Thu May 05, 2016 5:21 pm

Hi i have a 1959 falcon with a 9e engine i believe. Ive finally got it running ( thanks to all who helped me out with that ) but now its dangerously low on oil . Ive looked online to find the recomended castrolite SAE 20 and castrol xl SAE 30 which is recomended on the engine castings , but no shops seem to sell it . Could anyone recomend the eqiivilant to these oils that could be found at your average motors store / halfords . Thanks

Slightly confused by your 'dangerously low on oil' comment as there is only the chaincase and gearbox where you need to keep an eye on levels.  Most important is the 2 stroke oil you add to the petrol as without it your engine will soon seize.

For the chaincase - most people use automatic transmission fluid (ATF). Halfords sell it.

For the gearbox; in my bikes I use Comma G041L EP 80/90 GL4 which Halfords do sell also.

For the petrol Silkolene Comp 2 PREMIX gives good results. Use a ratio of about 30:1, around 35 ml for every litre of fuel. The book says 20:1 but this is too much with modern oils. Don't use a 2 Stroke injector oil, make sure it is a PREMIX oil. A good bike shop should sell it if Halfords do not.
