What motor oil do I use in my 1715 Cub Cadet ( w/ 17 h.p. kohler engine ) lawn tractor ? I don't have an owners manual.

If it's a Kohler Command engine then you use SAE10W30. All other Kohlers use SAE30. With the Commands it is critical to use 10W30 so that the hydraulic valve lifters function properly.
