Quick question...


Recommended Posts

I bought a 782 with deck, tiller, and snow thrower at an auction a few years ago...

I bought a Kohler command V twin and replaced the old, tired, 17 horse Kohler flat twin this summer.

I just got the snow thrower mounted up today, and decided to check the lube in the 90 degree gear box.

What in the world is that supposed to have in it for lube??????

What FELL out looked like 90 wt. and tar mix...

Any help is appreciated.

They originally were grease filled.

Fill about 2/3 full with corn head grease (like 150 wt. Oil).

Make sure you get a good seal on the gasket and check it for leaks occasionally.

I use JD corn head grease.... I know, I know..... but in the past I mixed 90wt synthetic gear oil and Valvoline synthetic wheel bearing grease until I had a pudding like consistency of "fluid".  I still have that mixture running in at least one box.  Worked very well actually. Just thought I'd throw that out there in case finding corn head grease isn't easy for you.
