Question about Garden
I got a wheel horse 516h lawn tractor for free. It did not come with an owner's manual and I do not know what kind of oil to use? It is a hydrostatic.
Your Onan engine will do excellent with Mobil One 0w40, Mobile One 5w30.
DO NOT use hydraulic oil in the transmission/transaxle, you will destroy it. Your tractor uses an Eaton 11 Hydrostatic transmission pump with the oil resevour being the cast iron transaxle. The WheelHorse transaxle is as rugged as they come. It uses a solid cast iron housing, case hardened intermediate gears and forged differential gears with an eight pinion differential.
Your transaxle requires 10w40 synthetic or conventional oil as well as a wix 51410 filter or the OEM wheelHorse filter. It should be changed every 100 hours with conventional oil or 250 hours with synthetic. DO NOT use hydraulic oil!
