HOME and how to join Forum Open Area General Scott topics Best oil for bottom end Re: Oil


Hi Trevor, best to make up your own mind and be happy with your decision. My 1926 Scott, which I have been riding now for 13 years, has a pilgrim pump converted to drippers. I run Valvoline 2 stroke oil. I have set each one to 8 – 9 drops per minute and have had no trouble. I noticed on a hot day – here in Australia – the drip rate does increase. But it is never a problem, doesn’t oil plugs and the electric start we fitted 4 years ago still works well. I have just enjoyed a 3 day weekend riding my Scott around the Western District of Victoria in glorious spring weather.
Good Luck.
