Default Maytag 72-D in Sacramento!

Hi guys! I bought this Maytag 72-D from my local lawn and garden shop, and got it running.

Same oil/gas ratio, but I couldn't find any non-detergent oil for sale here, so I got some Opti-2 2-stroke oil.

If anyone has a source for the correct oil in Sacramento, let me know.

If you cannot find ND 30 wt oil, a good TCW-3 or marine 2 stroke oil will work fine. NO synthetic or one mix lubricants!. I get my SAE 30 non-detergent from a local NAPA auto parts store.

I got 30 wt non detergent off Amazon. Just mixed my first batches with it and fired up a 1927 model 92 side exhaust I got for $25 at a swap meet. Runs like a top, smokes like a forest fire LOL.

It wouldn't fire at first but a shot of carb cleaner in the air intake apparently freed the check valve and it took off. I was blown away at how easy those things start, like you rotate it up to near TDC and if your not careful POW, it's going.
