    I am looking for the oil specs for a McLane gasoline edger with a 3.5 HP Briggs and Straton engine. It has two oil reservors; i am guessing one is for the engine and the other is for the gear box for turning the pulley. any assistance would be appreciated.

I just went to start up my older model McLane gas edger. Started up without a problem until the spark plug suddenly flew out. I assume I must need a new spark plug but is there more?

i would check the thread where your plug screws in it can be fixed with what they call a helicoil thread repair kit hope this helps.
