Did you try filling with the bolt out ? I know the crankcase filling instruction on my 60 is "fill untill it comes out the oil check hole". HTH b|
Yep. That's how I do/did it. With the lift DOWN. Not that it matters.
If it takes 2 years to lose 2 qts, I'm not likely to take it apart just to fix the lift-arm studs that drip a couple of drops when I put it up for the night.
Old corn-sacks soak it up pretty good and make good fire-starters when burning brush.
