Scag Tiger Cub 19hp KAWASAKI

Just purchased a used Tiger Cub from a private party.

It's a 2003 with <350hrs.

I want to change the oil & filter on the motor.

I went through the owners manual, and didn't see anything.

Anyone know what type of filter, oil and amount it takes?

Also, anything else I should do to the machine, just to be sure and safe?

Thanks!

go to a dealer….pretty simple, tell them you are changing your oil on the machine you have and they will give you what you need.

I find it hard to beleive you don't have a scag dealer, but in the event you don't…drain the oil, remove the filter and go to an Oriellys, auto zone, napa, whatever….bring the filter and tell them "I need this"

Buy some oil, and add it a quart at a time, check the level periodically as you are adding until the level is right.
Start the machine, let it idle a bit, let it sit for at least 10 minutes and check the oil again.

you may need to add a tiny bit more.


Alternatively you may be able to find a manual on line.

The engine doesn't belong to scag..so you would be looking for the engine manufacturer.

Takes 1.8 quarts. If you have a John Deere dealership close you can get the filter from them. That's what I do.

A 1394 filter sounds correct and 1.8qts should be very close to full on the dipstick.

And yes you should be looking for kawi specs not in a scag manual. Scag manual will say see the engine mfg for specs.

Thanks for the reply. Scag dealer is 1hr away (2hr round trip).

I tried finding some specs on the motor, and all I found were parts lists (one of the 1st things i tried).

The Scag manual lists the engine as a FH601V-AS21.

Maybe your googlefoo is better than mine. Any idea what engine oil to use?

Thanks!

30wt oil. Bring the engine model to any auto parts store and they will get the oil filter number (which 99% sure is a 1394).
