    Unless I'm blind, I don't see an answer to my question. I don't want a list of parts; and the link you gave me is for a different mower.

    All I want to know is WHAT TYPE OF OIL DOES MY MOWER USE/NEED?

Input your model and serial number of your machine on this site to download a manual. The manual SHOULD have deck removal and installation instructions. I don't know your serial number, but there is a label on your machine that has it. Go here:

What type oil for ariens st824 do I use?

Check your owners manual for the recommended grade of oil. If you don't have the owners manual, use SAE 30 weight. I prefer Castrol myself. It keeps crude build-ups down. Here is the site to download the manual. Just enter your serial number.
