Oil Level On troy Horse with Honda Clone Engine

I know many of you guys are running these honda clones on your horse tillers and I was wondering if you fill the oil level differently or something else to make up for the angle the motor will be running at when tilling deep
I don't want to disconnect the low oil level switch
Thanks for the feedback

Another member, I don't see him post anymore, told me he ran his oil fill side tire up on a 2x4 and filled to that level. I did it w/ mine and the low oil switch would still kill it when it was sunk all the way in so I disconnected the lo oil switch and after 4 yrs no harm done.

Cool. Thanks Mike. I will do the same then if it gives me trouble
Have to say I have been hooked on honda since my 1st honda snowblower in 1985 which I still use by the way and have quite a few of their motors.
These clones are my very 1st two and so far I am impressed .They start and run just as smooth I find.

I was however shocked how dirty the oil was after the initial hour of running on each and I have never seen that on a new original honda
They both have new mobil 1 syn 10w30 in them now since I run syn oil in everything I own since probally 30 years now

I just noticed you are from Idaho. I worked in Des Moines Iowa about 11 years ago and hunted in Idaho a couple of times with friends. Nice state and BIG deer. I am originally from West virginia but my family moved to canada I guess over 50 years ago to work in the coal mines when I was just young. Still have family state side and miss this thanksgiving weekend for sure . Not the same up here for that
