'97 10/28 Tecumseh engine oil

Not sure why, when I search the entire Toro manual, I can't find where it tells me what kind of motor oil to put in this bad boy. Sorry for sucha simple question, but, can someone enlighten me?

Thanks!!!

10W30 will work well. The important thing with a 10 hp Tecumseh...make sure you have oil to proper level each and every time you use it. They are known for throwing connecting rods. MH

I think 5w30 would be a better choice. Since it is used in the winter.

Thanks folks. I wonder why I couldn't find anything in the manual. I did a search on "oil" and got nothing but "gear oil" and "recoil"....

Have a great weekend.

Thumbs up

USE 10W30 SYNTHEIC OIL. IT FLOWS THE SAME AS 5W30 BUT WITH BETTER PROTECTION
