I can’t seem to find a post on this but I’m sure it exists. I am replacing an old predator engine (bolt broke off in engine) with a new one. I believe the engine ships with oil that needs to be changed? What do you guys use? Thanks

The new engine should have some paper in the box with print that says "user manual" or similar. It holds such arcane knowledge as what oil the engine should have.

They ship with about 1oz of oil in them, so you will need to get some 10w-30 (synthetic is better) and after the first 5-10 hours of use change out the oil to avoid engine damage. After that just change the oil as needed.

I'm doing a couple early changes with conventional 10W30, switching to synthetic after that with our new engine, similar to a Predator. Using FVP oil from Menards. The rating looks good, and much information at "bobistheoilguy" forum would indicate that it's good oil too, especially the price.
