I recently picked up a 1984 cub cadet 1282...put a new carburetor on it and it runs like new.
What oil do you guys run in these K30 Kohlers? Is straight weight oil neccessary?

There are many threads about what to use for oil.. and just as many opinions. I have been using Mobil 1 10/30 for a number of years now - I like the synthetic oils in all my vehicles.

I've been watching a lot of his YouTube videos lately... I'm going to order a rebuild kit from him for the 124 I'm putting back together. Very thorough videos and he genuinely cares about helping others preserve the old equipment 👍👍
