Question I need info on my 534

How many quarts does a 1962 534 engine take ?

What weight of oil should I use ?

Does anyone know what Autolite sparkplug is recommended for this engine ?

I don't remember how much, but you won't go wrong with good ole SAE 30, it's what was expected when the motor was new. 10W-30 probably would not hurt it either if it is cold where you are, or 15W-40 like the diesels use. It's not a high tech machine.

You should be able to find the spark plugs listed in an auto parts store still.
