what fluid do you guys use to run through the motor to clean it out before you re-assemble and fill with oil. just to get it all cleaned out what should I run though it.

my neighbor told me anti-freeze but that just doesn't feel right.

The parts should have been clean before reassembly, with no need to "flush" it out.... However, If you must flush, use diesel or kerosene, kick through, drain, add oil, kick through a bit...drain again, add fresh oil again.....

After draining the kerosene/diesel and adding oil, then draining the oil, it can be used in your old pushmower/tiller, etc.. Waste not want not...

If your old mower isn't too finicky and you're not concerned too much about it.. I do it to keep from wasting oil. I also use the cheapest oil I can lay my hands on for the first flushing..

My pushmower is an old beater so you can see that I'm not too worried.. :lol:
