The engine is a BF/MS on a wheel horse D160. This model uses a breather tube without the mesh inside it like the BM models. I just ordered a new tube from onanparts.com because my old one was cracked into.

Before I cranked it today I checked the oil, it was at the just shy of "add". I drove it over to my shop where the oil is and checked again, it was only had about 1/4 inch on the dipstick. Not unusual, so i gave it 2 glugs of oil. I had also changed the oil filter friday night and not added any oil back. I am beginning to wonder if my dipstick is the correct lenght.
I think i will look up the correct amount of oil that it holds, then drain the oil and put in the correct amount and see where that puts me on the dipstick.
Mine is definatley wicking up on the filter. I didnt think about it richening the mix. that explains why the throttle acts differently after a awhile. i thought i hadnt adjusted the carberator correctly.
