Are you getting a lot of smoke? If so the oil is getting past the rings and burning.

What kind of gas to used on lawn mower 55 158 cc craftman


Ori Hi, most lawnmowers use regular unleaded petrol now. If you have somewhere that oil goes into your mower then it will be normal unleaded but if on the fuel cap it has an oil can picture you need to mix it with two stroke oil.

Put too much oil in toro lawnmower


Hi cldgaines1...
You do not want excess oil in the crancase, it can cause mechanical problems and smoke a lot.
Drain the excess oil out of the crankcase..
If you have an oil drain it will be located under the mower housing.
If you do not have an oil drain then you will have to tilt the mower with the oil filler plug removed to drain the excess oil from the crankcase.
Please take time to rate me.

The lawn mower is smoking I was told it needs water. Where does the water go?


Hi tjean9...

DO NOT PUT ANY WATER IN THE ENGINE AS THIS WILL RUIN YOUR ENGINE, it is an aircolled engine and does not need water.
Your engine is probably smoking because you have overfilled the engine with oil...your oil level on the engine should be at the bottom two threads of the oil fill hole.
If there is more oil in there than that it will cause your engine to smoke and could cause damage to your engine.
Sometimes if your engine is worn it will also cause the engine to burn oil and smoke.

I need to find out gas to oil ratio on 6.5 hp craftsman lawn mowe


This info is available at any dealer or repair shop. I would recommend contacting them to be sure. The lead says mini-tiller but your question says lawn mower. The 6.5hp motors, as far as I've dealt with were 4 stroke which means no mixture, but check with a dealer or shop, they'll know.
