I use Mobil 1 10w-30 in my mower & shop air compressor. Amsoil Series 3000 0w-30 is excelllent too. Or just use SAE 30 and change it hot & often.

I hope you got a real good deal on this.
By the looks of the steering wheel, they pawned off an older version ( non- airbag ) on you.

Straight Castrol SAE 30wt.

Your engine is too small on that!! Take a cue from those guys who put a 350 and a 502 Chevy on a motorcycle!! Get a 88-CID Harley engine on that thing!

Not that I am a ricer fan, but a Kawasaki that will pull 9K rpm all night will sure as hell slice and dice and cut and evicerate and fillet and puree and vaporize anything that gets under it. That would be kinda cool. Especially if you turned upside down and put a big-a$$ aircraft propeller on it. VIOLA!!! A helicopter!

Great advice!

This baby is gonna mow (and mulch!)

Alright. I am going to have so much fun just running this dog, I’ll end up volunteering to cut the whole neighborhood. Pysched!

Thinking about some porting, polishing, crank and piston balancing. Do you think blueprinting is too much?

NOS …. Oh yeah baby! Can’t ya just see it …. A little NOS bottle with a hidden button under the handle…… blast through the neighbor's hedge when I feel like it.

But ....wait …. what is the best plug to run in this rig?!?

Keep me posted,

Haasman

Grass Catchers are for sissies, real men mulch.

Now completeing the message field...

In left message field, we have Lou Gerihg! But he has an announcement to make:

This having to post messages (essages, essages, essages), is the biggest load of crap (crap, crap, crap), that I have ever seen (een, een, een).

What is the oil change schedule on this kind of lawnmower. Should I use only animal oil?

Even though mine is a fresh complete mod, I am still considering installing a turbo or blower on the 21 hp Briggs twin cylinder. I know it sounds crazy but power for me is just addictive!! I want to improve my 0 to 2 mph time to less than 2 seconds!! Does Kleeman make anything that will fit?

use straight slick-50 and if you want really great performance add some duralube and prolong for good measure. you will never have to change the oil for the life of the engine or 6 months, whichever comes first

Yessiree Bob!! And notice the seamless clear corners! I love the look, and I think it helps in aerodynamics at speeds above 3 mph!

O.K. I'll bite.
McGuires-use the 3 step procedure.
Get a good chamois to wipe down after spraying her down.
May I say again that you are a nut?
Look at all the "views" !!!! Only the equally twisted are replying.

( Oh SH*%T- Now you have ME doing it!!!!!!!!)

I think my lawnmower (see above post) has a leak. She's dripping a white liquid from what I think are some kind of drain plugs. Cats seems to be attracted by this liquid. I don't know exactly what it is.
There are two other leaks (brown and yellow)
Any leads?
