New to me FL250
« on: February 03, 2020, 05:43:00 AM »
I just purchased a clean 84 FL250 this weekend. I have some work to do on it as it has sat in a garage for 2 years.

-I noticed the vent/opening on the case of the motor after I was spraying the engine off. How does the water get out of the motor? Hopefully I didn't just screw up and get water in there!

-I haven't tried starting the motor yet as I have to drain the old gas. What ratio should I mix?

-thanks for your help!

If you're referring to the small rectangular opening near the bottom of the case you're good. It is sealed by the gasket so no water can into the engine itself. Not sure why it's there. Maybe to help split the case if needed.
I use 32:1 fuel/oil ratio with 2 stroke synthetic amsoil oil.
