stratomatic 6-1 oiling
« on: April 08, 2019, 08:33:23 PM »
 On the hub before the flywheel on both sides there a screw on top of the hub. Is this for oiling or just oiling on a rebuild. I change the oil regularly but was wondering if I have to add oil to this location and is there any other areas for oiling . I know you have to grease the cam and the bearings on the generator on both sides, Thanks.

That screw locates the crank bushings. It keeps them from moving. No need to oil there. Probably not a bad idea if it has been sitting for a long time but you can accomplish the same thing by pumping the oil pump primer handle.
