RECOMMENDED OIL TYPE
Using the proper type and weight of oil in the crankcase
is extremely important. Check the oil before each use
and change the oil regularly. Failure to use the correct oil,
or using dirty oil, can cause premature engine wear and
failure. Use a high-quality SAE 10W-30 weight oil of API
(American Petroleum Institute) service class SF, SG, SH.
ADDING OIL TO THE CRANKCASE
NOTE: This unit is shipped without oil. In order to avoid
damage to the unit, put oil in the crankcase before you
attempt to start the unit.
Your unit is supplied with one 1.7 uid oz. (50 mL) bottle
of SAE 10W- 30 SF, SG or SH oil (Fig. 5).
NOTE: Save the bottle of oil. It can be used to measure
the correct amount during future oil changes. See
Changing The Oil (p.13).
1. Unscrew the top of the bottle of oil and remove the
seal covering the opening. Replace the top. (Fig. 5).
4-Cycle Motor Oil
Overfilling crankcase may cause hot oil to drip from
air filter, and smoke to come out from the exhaust.
Check and maintain the proper oil level in the crank
case; it is important and cannot be overemphasized.
Check the oil before each use and change as
needed. See Changing the Oil (p.13).
