I Forge Iron

Canadian Kitchener Forge & Blower Co. #210


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys I a small problem with a 210 blower that siezed up. I CHANGED THE GREASE in the lower gear, the old stuff was like dryed out candy. I then checked all the axle fittings on the gears and they were dry and slightly rusted. I freed them up with wd 40, the ball bearings that fit against another ball bearing inside. I imagine these are what keeps the gears in alignment. My question is how much oil should be in the bottom of the gearbox and what type ? There are no auto oilers in this model just pugs on the top and bottom.
Thanks in advance to all your answers ------Duck

For the most part they're splash oiled, meaning the gears themselves carry oil everywhere.

If there's no level plug I'd fill it till the lowest gear is in oil for 1/2" or better. Then without putting the cover on turn it over gently to make sure the oil is transferred to everything.
