I feel pretty stupid asking this but what kind of oil do I put in my new 70' square? It has a 1600cc motor with dual baby webber carbs? What is a "bentley manual" and where do I get one? Thanks in advance.

Bentley manuals can also be found used on ebay and through Amazon.com. I chose to buy a used one for 3 reasons: 1) price, 2) color-coded wiring diagrams, and 3) I wouldn't get pissed the first time I got it greasy (the previous owner did that for me already).

I use Mobel 1 10w-30 year round. I do change the oil and clean the strainer about every 6000 miles.
