Lot of smoke comming out of my lawn mowers when i start the engine smoke comming out ot the muffler


Craftsman mowers have 4 cycle engines. They don't usually give off a lot of smoke. The two possible reasons are a worn out engine or someone put oil in the gas as if this was a two cycle engine.

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...

2 or 4 cycle oil for a Ranch King 6.0 lawn mower? What kind or type of oil should use?


If you mean oil for the crankcase use need 4 cycle oil Ususally 30 weight and don't over fill Most small engine do not even take a quart only about 20 oz.

If you mean to mix with gas ( I doubt this) but then you need 2 cycle oil depending on the mixture usually about 3 oz to a gallon of gas (3.2 oz / gal = 40:1 ratio, 2.5 oz/ =50:1)

I have a craftsman snowblower that I believe is about a 1998-99 model. I need to know what type of oil it uses... If it does at all.


I can answer this for you if I have the model number of the snow blower. But, if the snow blower uses a 2 cycle motor it will use an oil/gas mix and no oil in the crankcase. If it is a 4 cycle motor it uses oil in the crankcase and none in the gas.
The easiest way to find what type of oil it uses is to look in the operators manual. To get the free manual go to managemylife.com and input your model number in the manuals tab.
Your model number is located on the machine and looks like 247.123456.

Where is the oil filter on a 17 HP Craftsman briggs & Straten engine and what grade of oil do I need


It may not have a filter, but if it does it would be a small spin on type on the left side of the engine about 4 inches in diameter. Use SAE 30 in that engine. It takes about 48 ounces of oil. Sears sells 48 oz bottles or you can use oil from your favorite auto parts store. Just don't over fill or it will smoke. Verify level with dip stick screwed in.
