Your 16.5 hp Briggs engine takes SAE HD30 weight motor oil. I recommend to use a name brand high quality oil. It should take 48 ounces from a complete drain. If you run this engine when it is cold outside (below freezing) then you can change to a 10W30 oil.
Good luck

    I forgot to mention, Briggs recommend to change the oil every 25 to 50 running hours depending on conditions. Most shops will recommend to the average homeowner to change oil every year, and to the professional/commercial user to change oil every week.

    2 options--- replace the dusted motor (faulty air filtering system) or re-ring the engine. Go for the new engine as the dust will have worn the piston and bearings.

    I have a Husqvarna 340? with 16 inch bar. Has sat for a while but now will not start. It pulls fine but doesnt crank. Second, what type oil should i mix with the gas


    Any brand of 2-cycle oil for air cooled engines will work. Do not use outboard, snowmobile, etc. Sounds like the gas evaporated and the oil was left in the carb and clogged it up. You can try removing the air filter and spraying some gum cutter, carb cleaner or Sea Foam(my favorite) into the carburator. It will probably need to be diassembled and cleaned. Usually the hardest part of the job is getting the link and hoses unhooked.

    What type of oil do I use in my remington 16 inch 3.5 hp electric chainsaw?


    You need “Bar and Chain Oil”, available at hardware stores and home centers. It is SAE 30 with additives to make it adhere to your bar and chain.
    An excerpt from a Remington manual follows (edited).
    FILLING OIL TANK

    1. Remove oil cap.
    2. Fill oil tank with SAE 30 motor oil if the temperature is between 30 & 75°F.
    • Colder use SAE 10 oil.
    • Warmer use SAE 40 oil.
    3. Replace oil cap at once. Tighten oil cap firmly for a good seal. This will avoid oil seepage from tank.
    4. Wipe off excess oil.
    • It is normal for oil to seep when saw is not in use.
    • Empty oil tank after each use to prevent seepage.
