Oiling is another thing I am learning here. This engine is a “total loss oil system” which means oil enters the engine and is “trapped”. It does not recirculate back to the oil tank. It accumulates in the engine. Every so many miles the oil needs to be drained from the crankcase to keep the level under a certain amount. You want to start the day with 4 ounces of oil and adjust the oil “drip” to eight drops per minute. So simple yet so complex. Here’s how you start the day.
