10-40 is all I've ever run in equipment that never sees temps below 30 (like a TM, pressure washers, lawn and garden, etc)
Valvoline full synthetic with largest capacity oil filter available too
don't know if heavier wt makes a difference good or bad .
I kind of trust the engineers at Honda, Kolher and Briggs specs for the most part
as I see it, what matters most, is using top quality oil (Valvoline is) and changing it regular
It's a Briggs 26 hp. Water cooled heads. I had a thread awhile back about what intervals to change fluids. Many of the guys recommended a high zinc oil. Up till now I've been running NAPA synthetic 10w30
wonder who's oil NAPA has private labeled??
I'm reasonably sure it's more than fine.....and if Valvoline, it's the best ...period
also reasonably sure who ever makes it, the only change on the line are the bottles
don't know anything about extra zinc .
They don't make my engine anymore so I've been trying to change every 50hrs or before. I also just changed my blower oil over to Valvoline 75w-140 full synthetic.
can't go wrong there
at that interval, you could use junkazz Quacker State or Crapstrol oil and be fine.....
The high zinc is great as long as it is not fuel injeted and has a catalytic or o2 sensors as it will kill those faster that normal as the zinc Coats them and renders them useless.
So do you suggest that only the two cylinder, air cooled engines use that kind of oil?
snore, but lets have some fun. Let's get Matt confused and really get this thread going.
If Corn Oil is made from corn, and Olive Oil is made from olives, where does Baby Oil come from?
shut up and go waste some money,
Yes air cooled non fuel injected.
