1 A couple of tablespoons in each cylinder. If you can manage turning the engine via the fan that works too.
2 Ok, but would still consider changing it.
3 Good.
4 Good.
5 Ok.
6 Ok.
7 Ok.
8 Not unusual to happen.
If there is any sludge build up might try cleaning as much of it out as possible. You can use Kerosene or diesel as a solvent
If you have a service manual, might check the back lash between the rocker arms and valves.
As for the oil smelling like gas.
You may have a stuck float in the carburetor, might consider getting a rebuild kit for it.
Pouring the oil will only go so far.
Better to use a squirt can and try to hit as many moving parts as you can.
