Generally speaking, if there is a place on a gas-powered device that is labeled "gas" & a separate location labeled "oil" than you will need to use a 4-cycle oil for that machine. If there is just a place to put gas, you would use a 2-cycle oil; however, you would need to read the directions/manual to find out the correct proportion of oil to use, because you will have to MIX the appropriate amount of oil with the correct amount of gas, making a oil/gas solution that you would use for that specific device.

The carburetor needs to be adjusted very slightly, with a special tool. If still under warranty bring it to the Sears repair center quickly before you damage the engine.

My assessment is you have bad piston rings and a large amount of blow-by.Hence the misting you mentioned. I am also going to assume you need to top off the oil frequently. Another sign of bad rings or even a cracked piston. Check your compression if you have a gauge as it should be around 30 to 50 PSI. If not then you need a rebuild. You should be able to get a replacement piston and ring set as well as the associated gaskets at Sears or many on line sources. If you are not equipped to break the engine down, a trip to the big box store with credit card in hand is my last recommendation.

I have a craftsman blower /vacum 29cc 4 cycle 425 cfm ? would like to know if you use 2 cycle oil in the gas or is this a gas only unit , second question is there is an oil port on the back of the motor...


Hi lindseyhpaint...
DO NOT MIX OIL WITH GAS ON A FOUR CYCLE ENGINE use gasoline only, the oil will go into the oil port on the back of the motor with an oil level line (crankcase).
You will need a good grade of 10W30 to use in the crankcase.
