What API service is it? That will help narrow it down some.

Here is one I found on eBay for API SA-SB (SB was not approved for use after 1951)

Non-detergent SA-SB, maybe the 1950's at the latest ...

Formerly in marine engineering. In an earlier life I owned my own petroleum tank truck, and hauled for the majors and independent's.

Witco Chmical Co. bought Amalie in 1960 from the Sonneborn family, so the can is post-1960.

Zip codes were introduced in the US in 1963, so the can is post-1963.

English motorcycles called for non-detergent oil.
Small engines too, maybe.

My 2


There's no such thing as:
Too big of a battery,
Too large of a gas tank,
or too loud of a horn,
or too bright headlights.

Non-detergent? Probably used for OPE, maybe even for 2-cycle mix.
