Howmuch,and what type of oil?

Use McCulloch two stroke oil in the fuel....Do not use outboard motor two stroke oil. (I personally use Stihl at a 50:1 ratio in every one of my saws regardless of brand.) Use any brand of bar oil for the guide bar. I also use 30 wt motor oil though it is NOT recommended and know that the life of the guide bar, sprockets and chains are shortened.

Front shocks are vary soft. drained and filled to spec

If the dampening action is still to soft for you, you'll have to drain the forks again and this time put a heavier weight oil in them. If you put 20 wt. oil in last time, try 30 wt. this time. Always use a good quality "fork oil" never just plain engine oil.

What oil goes in this unit?

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
This response applies only to the engine:
Use 30 WT SAE engine oil.
You can use either detergent or non-detergent oil. I recommned 3 oil changes normal oil change intervals using 30 WT SAE non-detergent oil and on the 4th oil change use a detergent 30 WT Oil.

Where do you add the oil on a DeWalt 3100psi pressure washer?

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

From reading everything I can find, i.e User's manual & parts manual the only thing you add oil too is the engine. The pressure pump does not have a liquid sump.

You can look at parts here detail D:

So too add oil to the engine you would remove the dip stick from the crank case located on the opposite of the side of the engine as the oil sensor.

I recommend you use 30 WT SAE oil for 3 oil changes then on the 4th oil change use an HD 30 WT oil. The oil drain plug is located in the center of the side of the engine crank case base. On the 5th Oil change switch back to SAE 30 WT oil. Oil brands are not really important. They all have to meet SAE the same standards to carry the label of SAE. (Yes you can use a generic 30 WT SAE oil )

I have a gen power gx400i generator 4.0kvaor 3.0kw, 4stoke single cylinder air cooled.I'm not sure what type of oil is needed?

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Oil changes are supposed to be every 100 hours. You should use SAE 30 WT (non detergent) oil for at least 3 oil changes / 300 hours then 1 cycle of HD-30 WT oil as it does a bang up job of cleaning things out of the crank case and prevention of the oil rings from sticking on the piston skirt. I have made this recommendation for at least 30 years and never had to rebuild a home owner or RV type engine in a unit where it was known the owner did this cycle of oil changes in a generator. (Vavle work yes.. engine bearing and piston rings no!) .. The brand does NOT matter as long as it is SAE 30 WT oil. Lubricants can not get the SAE rating if they do not meet the standards. Just do NOT use a synthetic oil in it.

If you are talking about the transmission oil , 10w-40 JASO MA motorcycle oil will work. Most racers will use either an 80 wt (weight) motorcycle gear oil or for the racers edge a 70 wt motorcycle gear oil to increase the life of the aluminum plates in the clutch and help preserve the transmission gears.
