This is not my usual forum but the comment "Non Detergent Oil" caught my eye. My thoughts are that any engine that has been run since the late 50s most likelly has had detergent oil in it. Non detergent has not held a stong spot of merchandising shelves since then. So for general purposes detergent has been used. In the rare instance where it has not then the suggestion of cleaning the engine and converting to detergent would be what I would do. If the engine is a recent rebuild then I would start it off on detergent oil.
