What fuel do I put into a Vantage 3.5 Tecumseh lawn mower?

If it has a place to add oil to the crank case, either a dip stick, or a filler opening at the bottom of the engine, then you just use regular gas. Be sure to verify that there is oil in the crank case before running it this way.

Why is my Tecumseh 6.5 hp engine hard to start after taking blade off.?

When you tilt the mower too much oil will mix with gas. Try taking out the spark plug and cleaning it good in case some oil got on it. If this don't solve it, drain the gas and refill with fresh gas in case oil mixed with it when you tilted the mower.

My push lawn mower has no spark. It has a Tecumseh motor. What could be the problem?

Make sure you are getting spark at the spark plug, to do this:
Remove your spark plug and check to be sure you are getting a bright blue spark at the spark plug.
You do this by grounding the plug on the head of the engine and pulling the crank rope...watching the plug for spark.
If you are getting a nice blue spark then skip A below and go to B.
A...If you do not get a nice blue spark then you need to replace the electronic module.
Note: If you have to replace the module be sure to measure the position it is in, it is critical to starting.
Take a picture for later reassembly.
B...Also take some fine grit sandpaper (not emery) and lightly sand the flywheel where the magnet is located to clean any rust or corrosion from the magnet area.

After about 15 to 30 minutes, engine starts pinging (for a few seconds) then dies

Not familiar with tecumseh lawn boy. Lawn boys I worked on were 2 stroke, if this is the case the crank seal is sucking air after engine warms up. New seal would fix. If you can't do it you're self may not be economically worth it.

May be a blockage in the carburetor. If it's a briggs motor or tecumseh motor on it, check the flywheel key. On a briggs if the key is sheared you'll have no spark at all. If it's a Tecumseh and the key is sheared, you'll probably have spark, but this throws the timing off and could possible show signs of wanting to start, but may be pulling the pull cord handle out of your hand when it tries to catch. Be very careful of this. Tecumseh will give you a spark but if the key is sheared then it'll be the timing. Also, check the brake band on the flywheel and make sure the ground wire isn't off or shorted. Good luck.

My Lawn Boy Pull Start is Locked Up... If I take the Pull Start off, it is fine. How do you know if it is the motor. I am able to get the blades to turn by hand. They do not turn easy like a windmill, but...

Remove spark plug before you ever try to turn engine by the blade then turn engine. If it is hard to turn your cylinder it is gaulded and needs to be serviced or replaced. Check with a professional repairman. Did you run engne low on oil?
