It should say in your manual if the engine is a 2-cycle or a 4-cycle. The 2-cycle would need oil in the fuel, the 4-cycle would not...Good luck...Lee

What type oil for model 90234 4 HP 10 gallon

The model number is not enough info but assuming it's a run of the mill, Home Depot or Craftsman type electric air compressor, you need to buy compressor pump oil at Wal Mart or an auto parts store. Please don't use Automotive motor oil because that's not going to withstand the heat of your compressor pump and you'll be buying a new compressor because of it. If your compressor has a gasoline, 4 Hp. motor, it needs Mobil 1 synthetic and change it after every 30 hours of operation.

How do l fix an outboard motor that runs fine for about 5 minutes at full throttle and then abruptly stops and will not start until it sits for awhile?

Check that the priming bulb is fitted with the arrow pointing in the directions of flow to the engine. Make sure the vent is open on the fuel tank. Check all fuel lines for kinks or blockage. If none of that fixes it, you need a marine engineer to check the fuel pump and carbs.

How do I change one gallon of a 50:1 gasoline mixture to 40:1?

  • 40:1(gasoline:oil) ratio requires 3 ounces of oil.
  • 50:1(gasoline:oil) ratio requires 2.6 ounces of oil.

  • So for you to change to 40:1 you need to add .6 ounces of oil

    Repsol MOTO Gasoline Motor OIl,4T,Sintetico synthetic blend 10W40

    Repsol Moto 4T Sintetico Synthetic Oil - 10W40

    Synthetic blend lubricant with high thermal stability, designed to meet the needs of the most technologically advanced 4-stroke motorcycle engines.
    • Excellent starting and lubrication in cold conditions due to its low viscosity.
    • Meets JASO MA API SJ requirements.
    Its fine to change your oil with synthetic, Just be sure that you use synthetic from now on... I don't think its advisable to switch back to regular oil after using synthetic.

    Lawn mower motor

    No it's sounds like the float in carb is stuck I've had 3 motors do this I put a fuel shut off in the line after I cleaned the carb out and rebuilt it. The problem is the gas breaking down an gumming up the float in carb. Drain the oil and an run some oil thur it to get the old gas out make sure you clean the carb out to.
