If it has a Briggs engine then use SAE 30 oil. If you run synthetic (which I highly recommend), then SAE 30 or muti-viscosity oil like 10W-30 can be used, but if using conventional oil, only SAE30.

I have a Honda GX 240 engine mounted on a walk behind mower. The bearings in the shaft that connects the drive belt to the blade seized. I replaced the bearings in the shaft and the blade turns freely but...


Remove the spark plug and make sure that oil did not enter into the cylinder. Oil in the cylinder will feel like engine is siezed. With plug remove and engine will not turn suspect more serious problems. If the rod is siezed due to low oil, it can be replace by removing the sump. No big deal and could be nice project. Before you take anything apart, check that the cable to the safety stop is actually releasing. This could also make you think that the engine is siezed.

I can't find an oil drain plug on a honda 5.5hp engine.gvc 160.


The engine drain plug is on the main (square) base part of the cylinder block. I think it is 10mm. There is a compression washer to seal it aswell so it might need a bit of extra pressure to start it undoing. This should drain your block almost completely.
For diagrams go here, you will need the engine serial number and prefix.
