Maybe 4 oz in 5 gallon of gas as people often do with ATF. I rebuilt a 8N and sold it to a friend. Before I was even done with the hood painting, and had it off the tractor, he came and got it to dig out his potatoes. He brought it back for me to finish, and when I started it to move it, it was blowing oil smoke terribly. It was blowing by so bad it smoked out the oil cap/crankcase vent and I could even hear the escaping compression coming out the oil fill tube. Of course,all sorts of things ran through my head. I finally reasoned that he may have ran it out of gas and put some 40:1 weedeater mix in it. I called and he confirmed it. I drained it and put fresh gas in it. It cleared up in seconds on restart. My heart rate and breathing returned to normal after a few minutes. :D

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see Oh no. I'd never loan my tractor. This was his tractor that he'd already paid me for, before I even had the bodywork back on it. I had months of work in it, and couldn't imagine anything wrong, and just about had the big one when smoke rolled out. I'm just glad I called him before I tore into it.
