Question about Sears Heavy Machinery
I have the 3.8 Tecumseh motor. its a craftmans lazy boy vaccum/chipper. my question is, i only see the gas tank, that reads"gas only". i see no oil tank. so if the gas tank isnt a mix of both gas and oil, and theres no oil tank, does this mean it only takes gas, and no oil?

unscrew the nut on the bottom of the carburetor and remove the float bowl it must be emptied and cleaned , debree and water gets into the bowl and blocks of fuel flow reinstall the bowl and start, some carbs don't have a float bowl requiring you to remove the gas tank and carb which is a more involved cleaning.

If you have the same 8 HP Tecumseh engine that I do then if you look at the the engine, squat down so that you are looking at the recoil starter, then look for a label on the left side of the shroud (cover) down low and you should find the model number of the engine. Record that number and send it to me so I can check it. After I check it I will tell you what website to go to in order to order it or how to get the part number so your local small engine repair shop can order it for you. You can also just take the engine model number to the local small engine repair shop and tell them what you want to order and they should be able to get it for you.
If you go directly to the local shop, I hope you get it going soon.
