Starter / Generator need oil ?

Recommended Posts

KSever
I've looking at this plug in the top of my starter/generator. This looks to me as if it is a plug for oiling the bearing just like on the electric motors that I have to oil at work. Am I correct on this or is it something else? If so maybe it will quiet down the whine that I have?

I recently had 2 S/G's rebuilt and one of them had an oil cup the other did not have them. The guy that rebuilt the S/G said that the new bearings were "oilless bearings" that did not need the oil cups. JH

I only "oil" mine once in a while a few drops... And now that you mention it Seems like when I had the one rebuilt on my 3410S they said it had a different style bearing then what they replaced it with....

I would like to thank all the input I had here on this. I did oil this today after working about 1 hour to get this plug out. I finally had to poke a nail in the middle of this plug and screw a screw into it and pull the whole plug and screw out together. Oiled the felt inside with about 4 squirts of oil and it quieted down alot. Must have not had any oil in YEARS. Kris

I have replaced all of my CE frames from the bushing type type to the ball bearing type. At one time Delco-Remy had a kit for doing that. That frame style is the 'achilles heel' of starter-generators so to speak. In time if not regularly oiled, raises problems with the brush holders and armature.

      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
