Briggs & Stratton 6.75 engine series
Is this a good question?
Does it have a metal cover on it that says OHV? if so it is a 4 stroke/cycle.
Was this answer helpful?
Hi @vulkus ,
Just for my info.
Is having to add oil separate to the fuel in an engine a good indicator that it is a 4 stroke?
Don't 2 strokes have oil added to the fuel? Just curious.
I believe if you need to add oil to the crankcase and it has a dipstick it is a 4 stroke. If you need to add oil to the fuel mix it is a 2 stroke. Unless of course it is like the old motor boat engines that had the separate oil tank.
Thanks very much.
In a mower, a seperate oil fill or dipstick denotes a 4 cycle engine. Straight gas with no more than 10% ethanol is required. Smaller handheld lawn equipment that is also 4cycle requires fuel/oil mix. Its important to read your manual.
4 cycle. 100% positive
