oil has gas in it
Upon checking my oil I have found it to be rather thin & has a gassy odor to it. From what I've read up on it looks like I may have to re-build the carburetor. I was thinking that I should go ahead & change the oil. Now the problem is this, Last year I had to take my mower to get it running. The guy replaced the head gasket, put a fuel cut-off vallve on & serviced the mower. It worked good until this year. Only thing is that while trying to loosen the plug to drain the oil I have noticed what appears to be red loctite on the threads of the plug that are showing. I have yet not had any luck breaking it loose. Looking at loctites website, the only way to break it loose is to apply heat. I'm not really wanting to try this method as I am dealing with gas In my oil. It's a helluva predicament, anyone have any suggestions?
