    How do I change it in my Blower and Whipper Snipper?

    I know they need it. Dealer is backed up and can not get to it.

    Before you change it you should check it. Take out the spark plug, turn the blower, trimmer upside down and see if any oil pours out. If nothing, add about a bottle of 3-n-1 oil. The little spout fits easily in the plug hole.

    You didn't say what brand you have so don't take my word - call your dealer and ask if that's what they suggest.

    Just put an entire quart of 10W30 into your 1 gal. gas can and shake it up. That should handle all your 2-cycle lubrication needs.

    Actually Marvel Mystery oil works better for me.

    Like recently posted, pull the spark plug and fill it up. I use straight 30W year round here in Florida. You might as well replace the sparkplug while you have it out.

    Thanks for the help, I think I got it. LOL

    On a serious note. Does the shaft ever need any lubrication?
