I have just found out that Silkolene have reintroduced Comp 2 Premix Classic sae 40. No shops stock it in Australia as it’s a specialist oil but it can be ordered in 5 litre packs from the distributor Warrian Enterprises. Silkolene claim it is suitable for Scotts.
A bit odd as of course we do NOT want a ‘Premix’ type oil for a standard Scott with either a Pilgrim pump or drippers ! It will contain additives to make it quickly miscible with petrol, which again we do not want….
Hi Bob, No, they are not all premix, and there are plenty for oil pump two-stroke applications, but few of the 40 grade viscosity needed by a Pilgrim pump and the Scott engine.
We have covered all this before on this website, so have a search and you should find plenty of information.
I use drip feeds with 40 grade ,,never multi grade fed to the mains and a 50/1 mix in the fuel tank for this I use Stihl 2/oil , it works for me the bikes are pre 1930 flyer type so drippers don’t look out of place plus they can be viewed from the saddle . Regards D F.
After spending quite some time reading on here using the search function and the scott technicalities there is so much conflicting info. It’s bad enough on a “modern” two stroke, everyone has their own favourite oil. However choosing between a normal 40 grade engine oil or a 2 stroke oil seems a little harder!
