Oil grades/types for old Villiers engines

Post by ATCOMAN on Mon Oct 21 2013, 11:06

Hi everyone, As a new member just into doing up small engines I wondered if anyone could advise on oils that can be used in 1960,s Villiers lightweight four stroke engines.
The manuals all say use a straight SAE 30 oil but I wondered if a more modern Multigrade oil 10 w 40 or 20/50 type would do any harm?
Any advice would be welcome,
Thanks,
Keith (ATCOMAN)
