How much oil should I put in with this engine mounted with the cylinder upright? And the manual recommends 10w-30 and straight 30 for the higher temps. I'm planning to run with no shrouds, so should I change to something else or go by the manual?

Ok so I put 24oz but man it is really gushing out the breather!! I had to make a tube for the stuff to come out under the bottom bracket. Is there some way to get it to circulate back into the block?

Woah. Nice engine mount man. Looks very solid.

Well I put 20oz 10w-30 and 1oz zinc additive for the flat tappets. My motor is angled just a tiny bit back from vertical but that might change soon. Been running it all day and it's sweet with not so much coming out as with 24.
