Blower rebuild info= Buffalo "Honker" 300


Recommended Posts

A fine fellow sent me a big old Buffalo Model 300 crank blower (about 50 pounds worth of vintage real ferrous heft). Actually, it rotates smoothly and quietly and moves air with the most gentle crank effort. But, curious, and having seen so many reminders to carefully open these things in general, check bearings, seals and the like- Should I and how do I? I emphasize that the unit feels smooth and has no tight spots or the like, silent and just reliable feeling. It is drained, (for shipping) but does not show greasy wet areas on the outside at all- so I would basically conclude that it does not puke gearcase lube. I looked in lessons and the blueprints I could open. What say you all?jet(checked archives too- good questions but they kind of dribble off with no real answers.)
