Oil fitting

oil/grease fitting

Oil the bushing that is located in the sprocket at least every two (2) hours of driving time. Where do you oil it? Right where you see the snap ring on the sprocket at the end of the clutch. There is a bronze bushing behind the snap ring that needs lubrication. With the engine off, squirt several drops of oil while the bushing is warm.. At the same time oil the chain. What oil should I use? A good automotive oil like 10w 30 or a straight 30 weight oil is good. Once the chain gets kinky from lack of oil it should be replaced before it does damage to the clutch sprocket. A new chain is a lot cheaper than a new clutch. If you keep the clutch and chain lubricated you should gets years out of both. Oiling the chain after it gets dried out is a waste of time. Remember it is preventive maintenance, which means before the items get ruined.
