Here is what I found out from a man who rebuilds these engines. This is what he told me in a e-mail I received from him. "I run 32:1 ratio . I use only Amsoil Dominator synthetic 2 stroke oil." When I asked him what Harley-Davidson used to recommend in the old owners manual this is what he told me. "The book recommends 25:1, but that was using 40-w motor oil back in them days. Modern oils are designed to be ran at a different ratio. If you run modern oil at 25:1, you will have oil running out the pipe at the cylinder to pipe joint. Even 32:1 you will still have oil all over your engine." Hope this info. might help others. Mike D.

Just bought a 1964 Pacer. Could someone please tell me the ratio of oil to gasolne for the two cycle mixture? Also what brand/type of oil you use to mix with the gasoline? Does just about any two cycle oil work or is there one that is better than the others for the little Harley? Thanks, Mike
