You could just use the regular "Diesel Engine Oil" sold at Canadian Tire.
SAE 15-40 weight, or straight SAE40.
I have used them in my Lister(oid) and Changfa engines.
- 6/1 GM90 Listeroid - Delco 33si Alternator
- Changfa R175 - Lease/Neville Alternator
- JiangDong R165 Air cooled - 2 kw
- Changfa S195 (Waiting for a project)

I really can't think of an advantage to a Non Detergent oil. Modern diesel oils are very well suited for Listeroid use.
