LUBRICATION AND MAINTENANCE
Proper amount of oil has been placed in this machine at the factory. Since a certain amount may have escaped in
shipment and handling, check the oil level window located in #45 hand hole cover. Oil should be maintained at a
level with the black line on the oil gauge window. If additional oil is needed, add a SAE #20 weight oil, thru the
small hole on top of the #32 housing. Oil change in this machine is not necessary.
Occasionally lubricate the side rods and #71 screw with any SAE oil.
After long periods of usage, it may be necessary to tighten the "V" belts. This is accomplished by turning the #14
hex head bolt on the back of the machine clockwise to tighten. Keep belts firm, however, not too tight.
