Unless really trashed you can simply replace the piston, and re-bore/resleeve the cylinder, that will cost much less.An competent motor bike, or lawnmower repair shop should be able to do that for you, that way you could get a "Kit" online, and simply do that.

Do you have to mix oil and fuel before putting in the fuel tank if so what oil and petrol do i need to use


Yes. You need to purchase two-cycle oil and mix it with petrol according to the chainsaw manufacturer instructions (this information is in the manual). It will specify the appropriate mix for your chainsaw.

Cant find manual on line


what machine is this for?? i doubt you put 4 stroke in with the petrol!! usually you mix 2 stroke oil with unleaded fuel at a ratio of 50-1
so 100ml of oil in 5 litres of fuel. If your trying to completely remove the striming head then usually they are a left hand thread, so turn it clockwise to undo it

What kind of oil and gas mixture to I use for my stihl kombi?


When you buy the 5L of unleaded Petrol (the same as a car uses), mix with the recommended amount of 2 stroke Stihl oil as marked on the container that the Stihl 2 stroke oil comes in.
Do not use any make of oil other than Stihl or Husqvarna 2 Stroke. I have come across so many people who have tried to cut corners by buying cheaper oil. If you are asking the question you are obviously not going to use the saw to cut down hundreds of trees so for a few pence/cents more for each fill, give the saw the best chance to last.
I always mix the can with 2 stroke oil as soon as I arrive home from the petrol station and MARK the can very obviously as 2 stroke. If you don't use the mixture within 1 month, it is a good idea to use it up in your garden mower. That is as long as the mower does not have a catalytic converter. It will work fine on the very weak oil mixture that modern saws require.

Is a Victa Sunbeam 160 Special a 2 stroke or 4 stroke? Wondering what additive to use with fuel. Thanks so much for your help.


hi there tanyajames88

your victa is a 2 stroke vc160 these units sare stated to run 25:1 fuel / oil ratio

that is 40 mils of 2 stroke for every 1.0 litre of petrol that mix

so if mixing 2 litres - 1st put in 80 mils of good quality 2 stroke oil then put in 2 litres of petrol , give good shake and fill up your mower tank

2 stroke oil that you would use for sthil chainsaw would be ok its hi quality

you could use some fuel stabilizer additive to hekp stop mix from going stale too soon
if wish but most times just mix enoyugh mix to het job done , then mix more if need it

that way mix is always fresh

What is the fuel mix for 359


hi there troyandbec

pauly46 here
'
the ratio you should use is 50:1

that is 20 mils of 2 stroke oil for every 1.0 litre of petrol that you mix

so if you want to make 2 litre mix use 40 mils of 2 stroke oil , then add 2 litres of petrol only and give good shake

note use good quality 2 stroke oil , such as sthil or husqvarna oil from your outdoor power shop


but if using general 2 stroke oil from a garage use 40 mils of oil for every 1 litre that you mix
this ratio is 25:1 this mix is on the richer side

cheers hope this helps

Could you please let me know. 1] Can I use E10 fuel in my new RLT 30 CET 30cc trimmer that I have just purchased and am yet to start up? 2] Is 50 to 1 50mm of oil to one litre of petrol?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

First off the engine is designed to operate on unleaded fuel. The manufacturer makes no statements at all about E-10 Fuel. I will tell you from experience that you can use E-10 Fuel but.... should you ever have a warranty claim make sure the entire fuel system is 100% unleaded pre-mixed fuel. Your not going to hurt the unit using E-10 fuel as long as you maintain the proper fuel-oil mixtures. If anything a splash more of 2 stroke oil as in 22 mm / liter vs 20 mm. Or (+) 8 mm per gal.

Manufacturers statemenrts and recommended fuel mixtures below:

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

n This product is powered by a 2-stroke engine and

requires pre-mixed petrol and 2-stroke lubricant . Premix

unleaded petrol and 2-stroke engine lubricant in

a clean container approved for petrol.

n This engine is certified to operate on unleaded petrol

intended for automotive use with an octane rating
of 87 ([R + M] / 2) or higher.

1 Litre + 2 0 ml =

2 Litres + 4 0 ml =

3 Litres + 60 ml = 50:1 (2%)

4 Litres + 80 ml =
5 Litres + 100 ml =

The person I bought it off said it takes 50 to 1 don't know how to measure that


50 to 1 means that for every 1 unit of (2 Stroke) oil you use 50 of the same units of petrol. Most 2 stroke oil bottles have a measure on the side which you use to measure how much oil you're using so for 5 Litres of petrol (approx 1 gallon) you would use 100ml of oil.

50 to 1 which is usually written as 50:1 is a very light mix. Husqvarna saws use 40:1. You need to use good quality 2 stroke oil from tool hire shops rather than the cheaper stuff you can buy at petrol service stations. Some makes of 2 stroke oil, like Stihl, have a measuring cup on them with ratios marked on the side. To fill them you take the cap off the measuring cup and fill to the mark at 50:1 by squeezing the oil bottle. Then pour that into 5 litres of petrol. You can also buy mixing bottles in some hardware stores with ratios marked on them. You fill the oil up to the mark 50:1 and then fill it up with petrol to get the right mix.

I inherited a Rancher 50 20" chainsaw from my uncle only noone know the oil gas mixture.


using good quality 2 stroke oil use ratio 50:1

that is 20 mils of oil per 1 litre of petrol that you mix

put oil in can 1st then add petrol and give good shake

so if mixing 5 litres pour in 100 mils of 2 stroke oil and add 5 litres of fuel only

Want to no if it takes petrol on its own when fueling or 2 stroke oil added to it aswell


i guess your asking if its a 2 stroke or a 4 stroke right ?
2 stroke engines dont have an oil filler cap , just a fuel filling point, the fuel used in a 2 stroke is just normal unleaded (aus) but you mix 2 stroke oil in the fuel before filling (about 50/1) or whatever it recomends.
4 stroke uses the same fuel but you dont mix the oil with the fuel , it has its own filler point for oil , however you must use a 4 stroke oil with these .
hope this is what you were after.
