Electric lift maintence ? " JB Welded"

Recommended Posts

MPH
Seeing how I have it out of the tractor is there any recomended maintence I should do to it. Anything that need lub'in? Haven't taken it apart at all yet. Got the electric lift torn down tonight, cleaned out more really old grease and patched the hole rubbed in the gear case with JB weld. Think I'll go ahead and use grease in the gears and dry graffite on the tube. Plan on making this my lawn mower tractor so the grease should move alright.:) Supported the JB with a piece of stiff plastic lightly greased, hoping it won't stick.

My experiance w/ screw type lifts is make sure it's kept dry. If water gets into the balls in the screw mechanism it'll trash it. I don't know if the manual recomends something particular but I'd use a light oil lube after seeing your oil post's. I think grease would be too heavy that cold on the small motor.

I think I'd try a dry spray silicone lube up there Marty. Ever since you showed us the "Oil Viscosity at -40" pics, I'm amazed you can get anything running without preheating it....

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
