Ratio of oil to gas?


Hi John:
Two stroke (also called 2-cycle) Mix at 50:1
Some of the Craftsman units were 4 stroke, supposedly environmentally responsible. They took straight gas and had oil in the crank case. Came with a dip-stick to check it.
Personally, I had one and it was the WORST piece of equipment I ever bought from Sears.
I'm back to a 2 stroke STIHL and it is GREAT!
Cheers

I have a craftsman weedwacker, I don't know how to


Most weedwackers are 2 cycle (stroke) engines, meaning the gas and oil are mixed together before you pour it into the gas tank. If it's a 4 cycle engine it appears there is no dip stick or convenience way to check the oil, you can only replace it. Here's a youtube video that may help.

I can't find were to put the oil on the 1000w 2 stroke generator


Hi, For a 2 stroke you will not need oil in the engine. When you mix the fuel you add oil in the gas.
See the owners manual for details.

Oil change instructions and oil recommendation (lost manual)


Hello, oil to use in the engine depends on engine if it is a Kohler you will want to use 10w30 approx 2qts. The Briggs & Stratton engines use HD30 or SAE30 approx 1.5qts. Use the dip stick to ensure you have the right amount and don't over fill.

To change the oil:

  • run engine about 10 minutes to warm up oil so it flows better
  • at the bottom of the dip stick there is either a valve or plug
  • open the valve or plug and let the oil drain (I use an old gallon oil container with a funnel) leave the dip stick out
  • while the oil drains; change the spin on oil filter
  • once all the old oil has drained replace the plug or close the valve
  • wipe down the funnel and use it to refill the new oil
  • use the dip stick to ensure proper fill level
I also recommend that you replace the air filter at the same time, if the engine can't get air is can't run efficiently.

If this is helpful please vote yes, Thank You!!

White smoke from motor


Checking oil when it's HOT with mask the coolant oil mix formation.
Check the oil when the engine is COLD. If it has creamy/milkshake like oil in the engine crack case then it's a real bad sign.
Check the oil cap when it's COLD. Like for the creamy/milkshake non-oil like cream.
Are you loosing coolant?
Keep a log book on the coolant lost.
Does it over heat or does it the engine ran hotter compare to few months ago?

To pin point a blowing headgasket you will need
1)coolant system compression tester
or
2)chemical reaction test for combustion test gas
If it's the org. engine from 1986,with over 86,000 then blown headgasket is a good possiblity.
Tow it to the shop and let the pro to do the coolant pressure test and combustion gas test.
A full head gasket job with head re-surface (if it can be re-use) is worth it.
Shop around on well estiblished independent shops.
Fix the blown head gasket at the first stage of failure can safe you thousand on a head replacement.

Gas entered the exhaust system and then oil reservoir. I got the gas out exhaust change oil. Mower runs but in question is gas still entering both places.


the little solenoid on the bottom of your carb is letting gas flow while it is not runnung.therfore gas gets into your oil.About an 80.00 part..or you could just turn your gas valve off when your done mowing.but still you would have to eventually replace that part.hope this helps

Gas smell in oil


The white strip of fluid on the oil is a slight amount of coolant getting into the oil . The water could be from condensation on the dip stick. I would drain the oil and just put regular recommended oil in it with a new filter. I would pull the spark plugs and check for any coolant or oil residue on them.Then drive the vehicle a little and check the performance. If there is unusual noise from the engine then or blue smoke from the tailpipe the engine has internal damage.

Assuming the engine performance stays the same. There could be a fuel injector sticking intermitantly.
