Champion 400 blower gasket?

Recommended Posts

I recently picked up a Champion 400 hand cranked blower. When I separated the 2 sides on the fan section to clean it up, it was so gummed up with dirt and grease that I couldn't tell if there had been a gasket between the 2 sections. Does anyone know if there is supposed to be a gasket or some type of seal between the sections?
Also Can anyone advise me about what weight oil I should use and how full the gear box should be? Thanks

Joe if you mean the 2 sections of the fan housing, I have used thick paper to make a gasket. I have also used window glazing. Depending on your location, cold weather states, I'd use 30 wt non detergent ( Phillips Super HD is what I use ). Warmer weather some folks use 50 wt. but if live up here ( Iowa ) that will mean HARD crankin.
