lubricating an S-G (wick type)

Recommended Posts

The S-G I have for my 16 briggs is a wick-type, it seems, since there is the little oil fill cap on the front end of it. What does one use to lube it? - 10 wt oil? How often?

If the S/G looks like this picture, the bulge under the bushing on the endcap is a reservoir to catch excess oil. I have no idea what Delco recomended, but any light oil is going to mostly evaporate over time from the rservoir, IMO you could easily do 6 drops twice a year.

The front bearings are all sealed, the rear is sealed too on the newer ones. They look like this:

        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
