I Forge Iron

Champion no. 40 Blower


Recommended Posts

I have one of these geared head blowers and it has an oil cap on the top of it. I haven't found too much as to what oil I should be using in it. My first inclination is 80W gear oil, but wanted to see if anyone here had any suggestions? I found a youtube rebuild where he used STP oil treatment, but I honestly know almost nothing about that oil.

I use chainsaw bar oil with STP added. You don't want to fill it up. Use just enough oil for the lower gear to be able to pick up the oil and distribute it to the other gears. Should see some oil around the crank arm shaft. BTW they all leak a little oil if filled up they will leak a lot.
