lubricating an S-G (wick type)

Recommended Posts

The S-G I have for my 16 briggs is a wick-type, it seems, since there is the little oil fill cap on the front end of it. What does one use to lube it? - 10 wt oil? How often?

If the S/G looks like this picture, the bulge under the bushing on the endcap is a reservoir to catch excess oil. I have no idea what Delco recomended, but any light oil is going to mostly evaporate over time from the rservoir, IMO you could easily do 6 drops twice a year.
