If the engine is a Briggs and Stratton use SAE 30 only. If you run synthetic, (which I recommend) then you can use a multi-viscosity oil like 10W-30 or 10W-40, but only if using synthetic.

Troy built squall 210. Starts and runs for a few seconds. Decided to check the oil and gas poured out of the crank case. Im not talking a little. Im talking atleast a pint or two. Can some body explain...


You have a Troy Bilt motorcycle?

Crank case filled with gasolene indicates a carb problem ... typically, the float has a hole in it causing it to sink ... when this happens, the bloat valve can not turn off the flow of fuel and it runs into the combustion chamber, own past the rings into the crank case.

Many original Troy Bilt machines came with tank shut off valves, it is a good practice to turn this valve off when the equipment is not in use.

What kind of oil goes in crankcase


Rule of thumb for lawn and garden equipment ...

If it is 2 cycle - gas and oil are mixed - 50 to 1 mix. Some two cycle engines require more oil ... up to 32 to one.

It if is 4 cycle - has a fuel tank and a crank case - 30 weight oil SJ or better service rating.

If you want to become an expert on oil ... go here: http://www.bsehome.net/pdf/OIL_S_EG.PDF

And a final word ... it is always good to refer to the manufacturer recommendations when selecting lubricants. Troy Bilt (no longer manufactured by the Troy Bilt Company in Troy New York) uses a number of different engines on their procducts.

Motor seems to be seized


ensure that the motor oil in it was not presivation oil. some machines have a thick oil put in it to stop the engine rusting if stored for a long time this needs to be replaced before starting the engine. if the engine oil is dark and very thick this may be the case and the engine will need to be stripped to dislodge the piston. but that usually happens in a longer time than 10 seconds.
if not then suspect the motor has had some major mechanical failure such as a crank shaft break. remove the injectors or plugs to see if the motor will crank round without compression.
