    Break in 7 oz per gallon ( about 18-1) after 2 tanks 4 oz per gallon
    (about 32-1) and personally I throw in about 3 small capfulls of
    marvel mystery oil but you'll hear all diff opinions about that

    Marine is for water cooled engines, your motor may run hotter using that.

    But I guess some marine oil is OK, from what I have read.

    No, we assumed 2 stroke.

    Use a carburetor cleaner, spray it in and drain it out.

    The carburetor on a small engine is simple enough that you should be able to do a complete teardown, clean out, and rebuild pretty easily. A can of carb cleaners help. Just keep an eye on the order that you take it apart.
