RE: Changing Oils
MR BILL .... BAD BOY FOR LETTING THE WIFE PLAY WITH YOUR TOYS. ANYWAY THE MANUAL STATES AS FOLLOWS: DO NOT USE ENERGY CONSERVING OIL TYPES IMPORTANT... USE API SERVICE SJ OR HIGHER ENGINE OIL: RUN ENGINE FOR 3 MIN THEN SHUT IT OFF.STAND CRF IN UPRIGHT POSITION (LEVEL SURFACE) REMOVE OIL FILLER CAP DIPSTICK (NOT YOU) PLACE OIL CATCH PAN UNDER ENGINE REMOVE ENGINE OIL DRAIN BOLT AND REPLACE THE SEALING WASHER (COPPER WASHER) OIL WILL DRAIN REPLACE DRAIN BOLT AND NEW SEALING WASHER TO SPECIFIED TORQUE. FILL THE CRANKCASE WITH OIL CAPACITY: 0.74 US QT. INSTALL DIPSTICK AND CHECK FOR PROPER LEVELS ON THE STICK NOW FOR TRANNI OIL ALL STEPS ARE THE SAME ONLY THE MANUAL CALLS FOR A CAPACITY OF 0.69 US QT. *ATTN* THE KEY IS ONLY USE SJ OR BETTER TYPES OF MOTOR OIL THAT MEANS NO ADDITIVES OR CLEANERS APPLYED INTO THE OIL AS WELL AS NO ENERGY CONSERVING OILS THIS CAN BE FOUND ON THE BACK OF THE QT OF OIL IN A CIRCLE MARKING ON THE BOTTLE ......HOPE THAT HELPS.
