Check and see if you see a valve cover on the engine. 2-stroke won't have one.

What 2-stroke mix for a Snapper mower (Briggs & Stratton 6.5 HP)?


USE A 32:1 MIX. THE MORE THE RATIO OIL TO GAS MIX RATIO THE MORE COOLER AND LONGER LASTING THE ENGINE WILL BE. 40:1 IS FOR FULL OUT TROTTLE CHAIN SAWS ECT.

After about 15 to 30 minutes, engine starts pinging (for a few seconds) then dies


Not familiar with tecumseh lawn boy. Lawn boys I worked on were 2 stroke, if this is the case the crank seal is sucking air after engine warms up. New seal would fix. If you can't do it you're self may not be economically worth it.

I have MTD Yard machine and don't know if it is 2 or 4 cycle. Oil should be-SAE30. Can I use oil for 4-cycle which they soid me i Can. Tire.(M otomaster)


If your mower has seperate fill caps for the oil and the gasoline, then you have a 4 cycle or 4 stroke engine. In this case use SAE HD30 motor oil. If there is only 1 fill cap and it says oil & fuel mix, then you have a 2 cycle or 2 stroke engine.
Good luck

Non start issuse w/ tacumsen 3.8 mower took it to a shop they diagnosed it as the carb. told me i should jus get another mower . Is it worth repairing money wise...?


Maybe....used carbs can be acquired fairly cheap at places like eBay or you could just try to rebuild the one you now have. 4 stroke carbs are easier to build thans 2-stroke. Find the model # of the carb and get a rebuild kit. They don't make Tecumseh anymore but there are still plenty of parts and kits available to repair them.

No spark


After seeing what you and other ASK type web sites charged to answer my question, i called the dealer he answered the question for me. i ordered the part online and repaired it myself.

My advise before you pay anyone to answer your question try calling a local repair center, i found they were willing to answer my questions without a CHARGE
