Thank you for your question.

Without a model number, I will not be able to tell you what the oil mix should be. I recommend checking on the fuel cap first. Usually manufacturers mold the mix ratio in the cap. If it is not molded in the cap, please reply below with more information on the trimmer. The best information would be the model number. If you cannot find the model, reply with the age of the trimmer. If you only have the age, I can give you my best guess of the fuel mix.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Hi- The rig in question belongs to a friend who asked me for help............Someone had given the Brushwacker to him. The model number is 636.796241. SearsPartsDirect shows the parts breakdown but says there is no longer a manual available. And I couldn't find a manual elsewhere (including managemylife). My friend is out of town and doesn't remember for certain what is on the gas cap. He thinks it is something like 20-25, but that doesn't sound like any mixture ration I've ever used unless it means 20 or 25 to 1. I won't be able to verify what's on the cap until after 3 Jan.....Thanks for your help. Steve

Thank for the reply. The fuel mix on this should be 32:1. Make sure the fuel you use is less than five weeks old. If you need any parts for the trimmer, you can order them from our parts website. The link is posted below.

Q:

Can you get me some info on an old manual for a Craftsman Brushwacker, 51.7cc, model 636.796241? I need the Gas to Oil ratio, and the Spark Plug Setting.

A:

I can not locate an owner's manual for the brushwacker. The fuel mixture will either be 16-1 or 32-1. I would run some 16-1 fuel oil in the brushwacker and see how it runs and if it smokes. The worst this mixture can do is foul the plug.

Don't go to the 32-1 unless the brushwacker is sluggish and smokes a lot with the 16-1.
