I have a small leak in the reduction drive. What type of oil and how much are used in a 5hp I/C reduction unit?

I'm not going to say Briggs doesn't have a gear reduction box but I will say I have never seen one made by them. Most OEM'S buy the engines and install their own accessories. All my rental pressure washers have reduction boxes,They have a drain plug on the bottom and a fill plug on the side about half way up. Fill half full (even with the output shaft) With non detergent 30W engine oil thats what mine use,And it should be fine in yours.

Thanks restrorob, thats what I was looking for. I don't know who makes the reduction box, it's on a lesco aerator.
