    Be careful not to overfill it with oil, just to the bottom thread of the filler hole. If overfilled even by a bit the carb air cleaner will leak oil and the flywheel fan will blow it all over the motor. Check your air breather for wet oil in it and see wassup. Thinking you have a hs 49cc or Honda gx 50.

    Not everyone has perfect spelling and grammar, but when a post is one continuously long run-on sentence, it's hard to read. I'm not asking you to write a Shakespeare play, just use a period once in awhile. That's not superior typing skills or ap English, it's punctuation.
