Quantum 6.5 pressure Washer by Troy Built

I was given a Quantum 6.5 pressure because it was blowing oil all over the place. Actually someone threw it out and I came along at that time. I took it home looked it over and found that the problem was it was overfilled with oil. I placed all new gaskets (just to be safe) filter and a part that broke on me while repairing it. I also clean the washer inside an out. I need to know if this washer needs to have oil added to the gas like you would a lawn mower. it's a 2003 model and no rubber bulb for the gas (the one you need to pump about 4 or 5 time to start some machine)

I would appreciate all help.

No, It doesn't require oil in the fuel.

Keep a eye on the oil level, If it smells like fuel the carb float valve isn't working properly. This could be why the oil level was high when you got it.
