Which is the best Engine Oil?

Hi,
Does anyone have any favourite oil they use? Given the increasing multitude of synthetics I am starting to fear putting in something totally unsuitable. It seems harder and harder to find 'bog standard' oil.

Re: Machine gun type clicking from Dizzy

Thanks, I'll charge the battery anyway but I put my hand on the starter while someone else turned it over and could feel the vibration. I was misled earlier as doing it by myself and saw the dizzy move. Noise is not in the car. :)

Just cranked it over and filmed it and clearly coming from the Dizzy. Any ideas or links to previous threads o...

Re: Possible fuel problem.

Ok, just tried it with fully charged battery, and plugs cleaned and gap set (1.1mm) I found on here. So put Plug 1 on the front panel next to an earth bolt and fired it over, on my own but it was dark so I could see a spark, not brilliant but given the connection to the earth is probably not neverth...

Re: Possible fuel problem.

Cheers...
The battery charger readout did indicate battery was at low V and charge so may be an issue.
