Parts No. for Noma ST825E ?

Hi Folks,
May seems a little out of season, but I do annual maintenance in between seasons. I don't have the book for my snowblower, so hoping you can help out.

I have a Noma Sno Trac - ST 825E. Looking for little things. Already did belts and such.

Bulb is burnt out. Is that a standard bulb? Numbers seems to have worn off. Not even sure the voltage? Anyone know what I should look for in a replacement part? (aside from taking it to the store?)

Is 5W30 4 cycle appropriate? something different? anything new and better these days?

Thanks in advance folks!

Your bulb will be a 12 volt. What type of bulb is it? A seal beam(like on old cars) or a minature bulb (like brake lite bulbs)?
5W30 is the norm for snowblowers today. It was 10W30 a few years ago. Either will work.

5w30 vs. SAE30?

Hi there,
Thanks for your feedback. I picked up a 12v bulb.

I also talked to the guy about oil. He advised against 5w30 and recommended SAE30 (straight 30 non detergent).

Any one have some thoughts on that?

You have not mentioned what make engine is installed on your snow blower. I suggest you go to the engine manufacturer website and find a manual or look for oil recommendation.

Tecumseh recommends SAE 5W30 or SAE 10 when temperature is from minus 20 to plus 40 Fahrenheit. Manufacturers perform research to determine the best oil for their engines. I recommend following the makers requirements.

I can't...

Well, that was my first thought, however, Noma doesn't make snowblowers anymore.

It's a tecumseh though, so I guess I'll go with your recommendation... thks.
