    I HAVE purchased a used scag tiger cub...

    it has a 52 in. advantage deck..
    23hp kawi...

    i wanted to know if some one could tell me what engine oil and what type of FLUID to use for the hyrdo resevoir

    i need specific product specs for those two items ....

    i have looked at the scag site mower manuals for tiger cubs
    but i dont belive the info is valid.. due to my scag being an older model...

    please help

    ive also called 2 differnet mower shops and they all give me different info and they say for me to go to a scag dealer...

    please help

    Ok I will try to help ya some here,I just purchased a 2004 model scag and far as the engine goes I think 10w-30 motor oil is ok. In my hydro system I can use regular 20w-50 motor oil. Here is scags web site http://www.scag.com/, there is a dealer locator there just type in your zip code to locate a dealer, Also there is a section called '' contact us'' maybe you can get some answers there also. I typed in a zip code for detroit and here are a few dealers , not sure if any are near you

    No I dont think so, The hydro filter is a much finer micron than the oil filter,If you dont have any luck with the dealers I will try to get a number off mine tommorow. Both are spin on filters though

    Ok sae 10-w-30 motor oil is good for ambient (out side temps) from 0 - 100 degrees. Any major brand of motor oil is ok. the part number on the kawasaki filter is 490652062. I cant advize on the hydro filter at this time. And any major brand of sae 20-w-50 motor oil is ok for the hydro. I have a website that I order parts from it is http://www.mowmore.com/, I have used them before and are pleased. I dont say they are the best or cheapest but i am satisfied with them. there is a filter number for the scag hydro on that site but i think it would be best if you could get the number off the filter that is on your machine and go from there
