Leaf blower oil question

I have a little wonder leaf blower with a Briggs and Stratton engine. model 254422 type 1526 01 code 9505221b

Question is what type of oil should I use and more importantly how much does it take.

I changed the oil over the weekend and used 10w40 that I had in my garage, judging by what came out of it and the dipstick I put 2 quarts in it.
It looked fine on the dipstick but when I ran it there is smoke coming from the muffler and rechecked the dipstick and it is diffentally over filled.

Thanks for your help

Most small engines like that take close to a quart or just a bit over and use straight 30 weight non detergent oil.

Did you lose the manual for the leaf blower ?

According to a google search, 48 fl oz is the max so that's 1 1/2 quarts.
