Here is the question.

what is the best oil for a Ford Lehman SP135 normally aspirated Diesel engine?

mine is about 20 years old, with 4000 hrs on the clock.

Thanks for your advise.

Rob

I am running a 36 year old 6cyl Nissan and I am using Dello 100 which is a non detergent oil which is key.

Have run Ford Lehman naturally aspirated engine on Shell's ROTELLA T, designed specifically for that type of diesel engine.

Depending on the average ambient temperatures that the engines runs in and also the need to run a diesel at a high temp to improve efficiency, important to choose the right grade.

Have a look at Rotella's website HERE
