Look for an oil fill location, like on all small motors. My guess would be it has oil reservoir crankcase.

Why is my craftsman lawn mower keep shutting down every 5 feet or so. Its about 4 years old. Any suggestions?


Are you sure you have to mix the gas with oil.I don't think Craftsman engines mix the gas. It you have a dipstick that tells me that you put oil to the full mark on the stick. If your carb has a cup on the bottom of the carb take it off and clean it out. Also clean the fine holes out that's in the bolt as they get plugged with dirt.and engine won't run.Usually an air gun will do the trick. When you put it back together make sure the gasket is installed properly. If there is not much oil when you check it you could seize the engine.

Gas and oil needed for 2 cycle engine


Do you need gas & oil mix ratio? Most older units take a 32 to 1 mix ratio. Newer units have 40-1 or 50-1 mixture.

I have an old craftsman snowblower. It is a pullstart. I inherited this from my father. He did not have the manual.. wondering if I could find how much gas to oil mix and if it is a 2 cycle or 4 cycle...


The way to tell if it's 2 or 4 stroke is, if it has seperate tanks for the oil and petrol then it would be 4 stroke. I know that's not entirely true in today's world but up to recently it was. If it's 2 stroke then you need to mix the petrol with 2 stroke oil. Unless someone knows the right mix ratio I would start off with a rich mixture of 25:1 and see how it goes. If it's giving off a lot of smoke I'd reduce the oil a little to 30:1. It should be ok with this ratio. Use good quality 2 stroke oil e.g. Husqvarna or Stihl as some of the cheaper oils available at car service stations are not as good at protecting machinery.

I just obtain a mulcher Eadge 1 6.1/5 H.P. Does this mulcher works only with gasolie, or I need to mix whith oil?


Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. If there is a spot where you add and check the oil it doesn't need mix if it doesn't then you will need to mix the gas.

I inherited a super xl automatic 04541447 from my deceased father and do not have a manual. Can you tell me the correct mixture for the gas?


Use 40:1 mix. Make sure to use only modern synthetic saw oils and premix in a separate can before use. Good luck!

Oil change


STOP !

Your lawn mower is has a 4 cycle engine
It does not require oil to be mixed with the gas
The oil for the crankcase should be a 10W-30 or 10W- 40
NO GAS IN THE OIL
What you have is a 2 cycle oil that is mixed with gas for most weed eaters, chain saws, ect
Putting a gas/oil mix in your mower WILL severely damage it destroying the main bearings and could lead to an explosion or fire.
Please be careful

Gas, Oil Mix ratio for McCulloch Eager ******


Fuel/Oil Mixture
  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL supplier's recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 8oz/2gal - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (Stihl 2.6oz/1gal)
  2. Most gas in the US of A contains ethanol; not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few months. Anything over 6 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH

Hard to start, when it does start only runs for a few seconds.


You need a full tuneup which means after the spark plug you need to do all of these and you will have a good running mower.
Drain gas tank.
Take carburetor off and clean it.
Pull the top off the engine and clean the flywhee maginets and the coil face with a small wire brush of emery cloth.
Clean screen in gas tank if there is one.
Fuel filter if the is one.
Be sure to check for a good spark after all this is done.
If this is all done you should have a good running mower.

Crafsman Eager 1 6.75 HP lawnmower wont start


I have an Eager 1, as well and when I try to pull the cord it does not turn at all. It's stuck. I hit a tree root and since then I have had problems with it. I have 2 mowers so it was not used last year at all. Gas was drained and it was stored in a shed. Anyway, I know nothng about mowers other than spark plugs, gas, oil, sharp blades and filters. Is the motor seized? Thanks
