ariens riding mower

I was wondering how much oil does a 8hp ariens vertical shaft riding mower engine hold in ml? Also the carb has a high speed screw on the bottom of the bowl but the o ring seal for the screw was missing when the guy brought it for repair. Is it just a ordinary o ring or is it a special one? Any help would be appreciated.
