Evening,
What oil should be used in the Comet 500 engine please.

It's for my egli Comet, has had some engine modifications for hill climb/sprints, no information came with machine so a bit stuck.
What would you recommend for a top up please?

here we go:rolleyes: I thought the consensus on here (see recent much worn threads) that a lighter oil was more preferable and that multigrade so long as it had the old pressure additives Zp? was also OK eg 30-40 Duckams or Millers and the awkward squad like Halfords
But then what does an old bean oil man like me know? sometimes with a comprehensive forum like this its better to SEARCH than ASK its all been asked and answered before
