Question about Gcv160 Gas Engine
I'm very happy you finally got your mower going. Thank you for letting me know. You say it may be running a little hot. Are you using a multi-grade oil, like 10-30wt. or anything like that? Most mowers use a straight 30 wt. motor oil. If you are using anything thinner or lighter than that, it can cause the mower to get hot and will eventually cause it to seize up on you again. If the oil is too thin, the viscosity will break down faster and won't lubricate the moving parts as well.
If you ever have any type of problem around the house with just about anything, I'd be happy to try and help you out. I've worked in construction for the past 30 years, went to school to be a mechanic and have even worked as a free climber trimming trees. So, even if I don't know the answer, we can figure it out together. My email address is: email@example.com
It's been my pleasure trying to help you figure out your mower. Now, I'm ready for the next challege. Take care and have fun mower your jungle. LOL!
