another 47 blower question

1315 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  AnimalCracker
sorry, but another 47 question (the chest freezer one) ive greased everything, had new hoses made up, and next up is the gear box oil. So I'm going to pull the lowest plug, which isn't all the way at the bottom, and drain it, then I'm going to pull the top plug and fill it with the recommended cornhead grease. Do I fill it all the way to that top plug? Also, there was a plug I pulled on the auger, right in the middle, is that supposed to have anything in it as well? Thanks

Cornhead grease is the recommended lube? It doesn't flow unless heated you would have to pump it in. If there is 2 holes I would thing 80-90w oil.
I used Cornhead grease in a gear box on a 49 snow blower I rebuilt. I wanted the grease behind the gears after putting it back together, so I used a paint stick to spoon it in and a heat gun to get it to flow with no air gaps.

This is a pic of what it comes in and what it looks like, you will need gear lube. The 49 gear box in later versions use gear lube and have a 90deg elbow for filling.
