How much oil?

Recommended Posts

This is my first experience with a horizontal shaft engine, in a 3212. All my previous work has been on Broadmoors and vertical shaft engines. I drained the oil out of the engine ... it was quite dirty and only about a quart of oil. I put in a fresh quart of oil and it certainly does NOT fill the oilpan. How much motor oil is required for the 10 and 12 hp Briggs motors? Should it fill the pan to just below the oil fill plug threads? Thanks - Tom
