Power washer needs oil 2 places.

how many ounces or quarts of oil do you put in the - d72f00f.jpg

The pump head has a plastic window on side of pump. Oil should fill to middle of that window. Pump should have 20 or 30 weight NON detergent oil. SAE20 SAE 30 I believe. Auto parts store will know which is NON detergent.

The engine oil is ordinary 10W30. We used to change oil after each painting season by tilting engine to the side. Do not turn engine on it's side or upside down or oil will run into carburetor.

I don't remember exactly how many quarts we put back. Maybe 2? Fill up reservoir until oil is about half-way up dip stick.

Is it safe to put Seafoam in the crank case?

Yes, if you use no more than 1.5 ounces per quart of oil capacity. I assume you are wanting to clean the engine internally. Drive the car for 50 miles and then change the oil/filter. You can repeat this and leave the Seafoam in until the next oil change if you wish. Sefoam is a great product that I use all the time.

Need to know how many quarts of oil I need and anything special about changing the oil?

Nothing special, just drain the oil, change the filter, add three quarts of oil. You do know where the oil drain is on the frame just below the transmission behind the exhaust pipes. The primary holds 36-44 ounces, and the transmission holds 20-24 ounces of oil.

Good Luck

2003 harley davison superglide fxd questions concerning oil

The engine takes three quarts of oil with a filter change. Now, always check the oil after filling. The dipstick has two marks on it. The upper mark is "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Do not overfill.

The transmission holds 20-24 ounces of transmission lube. It too has a dipstick on it.

The primary holds 36-42 ounces of oil. Do not overfill this either because too much oil will make your clutch seem like it's dragging. You will not be able to find neutral with the engine running.

Good luck

Changing oil in Biggs and Stratton engine

Use 10W30 weight oil. The capacity is 1.5 Quarts (48 ounces) with filter change. I highly recommend you use 100% synthetic oil in an air cooled engine. Change the oil and filter every 50 hours of use.

How to change oil pan gasket . 2003 wide glide

The oil pan is on the bottom of the transmission on your Dyna Wide Glide. To change the gasket start by draining the engine oil and transmission lubricant by removing both plugs on the bottom. Once drained, disconnect the hoses going to the oil pan. Remove oil fill cap, remove two screws and remove the oil spout, pull up on the dip stick cover to remove it. Now, remove the allen head bolts and remove the oil pan. Replace gasket and all bolts. Torque all bolts to 7-9 foot pounds. Refill with oil. Transmission take 20-24 ounces of transmission lube and the oil tank takes 2 quarts 14 ounces of oil if you did not replace the oil filter. Since the oil filter is still full of oil, if you put the full three quarts of oil in the tank, the oil cap will blow off when the oil gets hot as it's overfilled. Good luck

Need information on the changing of engine, primary and transmission oils on 2006 883L sportster

Your looking at 2.8qts for the engine add another 1/2 quart or so for the filter. Always put a little oil in and then add till full. Use the amounts identified as a guide to how much oil to have on hand. You primary may use 22 - 28 ounces, and your tranny a little less than a quart. so have at least 5 quarts available for a complete fluid change (and filter) and you should be good to go! Hope this helps.

What is the oil capacity of the briggs ans straton i/c 17.5 hp ohv motor

Approximately 40 ounces. Put in a full quart first, then add about 1/4 of the second quart and start checking the dipstick until you are at the full mark. Each time you add more, let it run down into the engine for a minute or so before checking or you will get a false reading. If your engine has an oil filter and you changed it, figure about 2 extra ounces for the filter
