I've got a couple of questions for the 24 Star motor.
- What's the oil capacity and what oil weight do people normally run. Any issues with running full synthetic?
- I'm trying to figure out what the wire with loop is. Any ideas?

The engine holds 4 quarts of 10 W 30. The wire on the side is the oil level indicator.
Synthetic oil would be a waste of money in these ancient design engines but would work nicely otherwise.
