Hello...

After rebuilding an engine; new gaskets; seals and piston, what ratio of gas/oil do you use? 50:1 as recommended in the original manuals ?

Thanks !

Some people start with 32 to 1 for the first two tanks ... then 50 to 1. That's what I do also.

Thanks 1970 TNT.

I use C A S T R O L, easy to find. Before the restoration of my engine, I mixed 40: 1 but it was difficult for the carburetor. I changed to 45: 1 and the carburetor was going much better. I will try with 32: 1 anyway to see how the carburetor will work and how many flies I will axphysier.
