Maybe this'll help. From the manual..
6. Before Starting the Engine - (a) Remove the oil gauge rod and plug in the crankcase cover and pour in approximately one quart of engine lubricating oil (Medium for summer, Light for winter). Replace the gauge plug and rod. The oil should register at the "FULL" mark on the rod. Do not fill above this mark. (b) Fill the fuel tank with gasoline (approx. 3 quarts). (c) Fill the water hopper (approx. 2 gallons). Hot water will assist starting in cold weather.
