You had excellent information on the sears 217-5854-4.
I have rebuilt one with your help. Owners manuals not available. www.sears.com has an excellent parts list and diagram.
You suggested 8 oz oil per gallon of gas (16:1)
Runs good but smokes a lot. Also leaves quite an oil slick.
Any suggestions on how to tame old smokey?
Thank you.
