Question about Garden

1 Answer

Dear Expert I have a McCulloch M40-450CP Petrol Lawn mower. I have lost the instructions. i know it takes 4 stroke oil but i cannot find where i put the oil in, does it go into the petrol tank - like you would a boat engine? Or is there a separate slot if so where is it as i have searched all over the mower and just can't see it. Cheers Sarah

If is a 4 stroke don't put oil in fuel tank. There is oil fill. Not familiar with this model. If it is a walk behind mower check at base of engine there may be a plug there it has 2 little pegs sticking up.

What oil to use for a yardworks gas mower 060-1648, 060-1649, 060-1658


Hi , There's two different types of mower oil, There's the oil for the sump (4 stroke mowers ONLY) Ask at the local lawn mower repair store for the oil type and the 2 stroke grade, it's just two stroke oil you add to the gas (2 stroke mowers ONLY) If you own a 2 stroke mower then yes you actually add the oil to the gas before you put it in the gas tank (25 to 1 ratio) but If you own a 4 stroke mower then NO you DON'T put the oil in the gas tank. There is (two) capes, 1 for the gas and the 2nd cap is there somewhere for the oil.... Have a look at the link below... CHEERS..

2-stroke or 4-stroke?


Well, if it has an oil drain plug and/or a fill plug for oil, It's a 4 stroke. If it has an odd shaped muffler/resonator, it's a 2 stroke.

What sroke is a masport 635. is it two or 4 stroke. it has an openping for the petrol and a seperate opening for the oil.


Judging from what discription you are giving me I would say it is a 4 stroke, so make sure you have either sae 30 or 10/w30 oil in crankcase where it says oil and petrol (gas) in the other tank. 2StrokeJim

I got hold of a sanli 350 lawn mower 4 stroke the people gave me a bottle of 2 stroke oil with the mower is this the right oil to use


No No No No!!! If your mower is definitely a 4 stroke then do NOT put 2 cycle engine oil in it (and I hope they didn't either). Drain out whatever's in there completely and put standard 30 wt. oil in there. Not 10W30, but straight 30 weight. Use synthetic even if you want longer engine life.

My Lawn mower seems to be produced by ALKO, but has the Briggs and Stratton emblem also. It is the 40b model and having just inherited it, I am trying to find out if I put just petrol in or whether I need...


Hi scottcoles5...
The easy way to find out if the motor is 2 or 4 cycle is to check to see if the engine has oil in the crankcase...if it does it is a 4 cycle and you will NOT have to mix oil with your gas. 2 cycle engines do NOT have an oil in the crancase and depend on the oil you mix with your gasoline.
You can also check the color of the gasoline in the tank, most 2 cycle oils contain a colorant to color the gas to let you know there is oil in the gas...

Hi, I have a Masport 635 Lawn mower, I think it is 2 stroke, just petrol ( not mixed with oil ). I don't know anything about how to maintain mowers. But today I mowed the back yard, it went fine, then...


If it is two stroke it must have oil mixed in with it. Try pulling the cord and notice if there is any compression if not then it is the pistion and if it doesn't turn then it is seized with lack of oil.Now if it is four stroke take the plug out put it to the head and pull the cord to see if there is any spark if there is it's a fuel problem.

How do i tell a victa 2 stroke from a 4 stroke?


two stroke mowers will have a picture of a oil can on the fuel cap,if it doesn't it is most likely a four stroke.
four stroke mowers will have a fuel cap and a oil cap as well.
