Oil capacity

I'm getting close to the 5 hour break in with my Ariens 24 deluxe,and I was wondering if anybody knows the oil capacity for the 254 cc? I know the best way is to add some little at a time and keep checking the dip stick,but trying to figure what the actual oil capacity is.i can't find it in my owners manual anywhere,there's a manual for the snowblower,and the engine itself,but I can't find the capacity in either manual.thanks

Ok, you've peaked my curiosity. So you found the manual and know oil capacity. After at least 5 hours use, how does oil capacity help you determine how much to add?

Beyond that, my suggestion is to check the oil before you operate the snow blower, not after 5 hours.

He dumps the old and adds a little at a time until the dipstick reads full.

???.i always check the oil each and every time before I start it,I didn't say I only check the oil after I used 5 hours.. I wanted to know the oil capacity so when I change the oil I'll know how much to use.even though I add a little at a time and keep checking the dipstick.so now I know the capacity,I can add close to that then check the dipstick till it's full.

I use this as a resource for "estimating", although, I use my dipstick to get a more accurate reading.

Just make sure that you're equipped with the "Correct" Dipstick.

I recently had a Friend whose lawnmower kept misfiring and staling anytime he used it on a hill.

The final diagnosis was that his engine had the wrong dipstick installed at the factory and he had been over filling it with oil since the beginning.
