1977 Puch Maxi Engine Oil?

I see there is transmission oil but I don't see anything in the manual or drain/fill plugs that would denote a dedicated engine oil system. Is the engine cooled by the transmission oil? I don't want to screw this thing up. Thanks

Re: 1977 Puch Maxi Engine Oil?

The engine oil (2 stroke oil) is mixed in the gas at a 40:1 gas/oil mix.

Research how a two stroke engine works to understand more.

Look on the bottom of the engine. Trans oil is Type F ATF

If do you want better protection and your clutch is stock material then run synthetic motor oil 0 to 5 w20-30 weight it’s about 10 times better than junk type F tranny fluid,

Even regular Dino motor oil is better then type f in a puch tranny

I tried 0-10w oil and I burned a clutch. try one if you don't like it run the other.

Yes, it is the 2stroke oil you mix in the gas. You must have this as it is your engine's lubrication.

There is no engine oil reservoir. The only engine oil is the two stroke oil you mix in the gas before dumping it in the tank.
