Default Oil suggestion for 5 HP Tecumseh engine

Yes...... this is a real question... What is the recommendation for engine oil in a 5 HP Tecumseh one cylinder engine? It is on my lawn vac and it screams while picking up leaves. You run the thing at max throttle for 3 - 4 hours at a time. Weight and brand suggestions welcome... Junk...

Its a mower engine, dont worry about wasting your money on expensive oil.

Junk,

I'll 2nd Mith's suggestion. That's what I've always used and never had a problem (unless of course I ran it out of oil...:o ).
