No slapper, I didn't think to check the old rings while I had it apart. All's well that ends well though, because it doesn't smoke any more.
I put one quart of oil in for frear of the dipstick not reading correctly. I read so many situations in the troubleshooting section of the manual that were due to overfilling with oil, I want to know exactly how much oil I should put in. I think the dipstick is not right.
How much oil should be pourted into an empty crankcase of a Tecumseh OH160?
Thanks to all for the help.
