How much oil does my H 600 Mixer hold ( Hobart in the Transmission

1 gallon of 90w Gear Oil -- can be purchased from AUTOZONE! Make sure when you have completely drained from the large drain screw from under the mixer toward the back of where the attachments go on but not part of the part that spins around known as the Beater shaft! Once you have drained out all of the oil -- from the top where the front screw attaches the head or cap of the mixer -- add the oil there and make sure you are watching the sight glass to see when it is at the HALF way mark in other words when the oil level (TIP: Use a bright led flashlight to shine directly at this sight glass to view level) reaches to the midway mark of the oval sight glass, THEN STOP! It is full! Carefully start mixer on 1st gear and then 2nd so on and so forth to make sure everything is getting relubricated correctly and slowly -- don't just go setting it on 3rd or 4th speeds as you want to baby the mixer when you just put in new gear oil

Hope that helps!

You most likely will need to replace side cover. You may be able to use a stick to measure where the oil is in relation to the sight glass when it is filled. Then RTV the sight glass after cleaning to prevent leakage and use your measuring stick to check oil level.

I have an old bike also, no dip-stick, but theres a sight glass on the right side of the engine, down low on the side case, you should put it on the center stand first and add oil slowly until you see the oil in the sight glass, only fill it 1//4 of the way, start bike, run for 30 second- to 1 minute the turn it off and check the level when it cools down again, add more oil slowly as needed but dont fill above halfway in the sight glass.

How do i check the oil because i just bought a 2009 suzuki bulevard but there dip stick? and the dealer ship didnt give me an owners manuel

On newer model bikes there is no dipstick, just a cap.
so to check the oil level, you need to look on the engine cover itself.
there will be a sight glass, with 2 hash marks on the case .
lower line is minimum, top line is maximun

If the sight glass is too dirty, warm up the bike and then change the oil and filter.
Then watch the sight glass as you fill the oil.

if bike is equipped with a center stand, always check oil on center stand.
if no center stand then check oil with bike on kickstand.

The sight glass will be either on the right side lower engine cover
or left side lower engine cover.
it it round and about the size of a quater.

Hope to be helpful.
best regards

I need to know how to do a correct oil level check?

On the right side of you motor, there will be a sight glass.
You will have to crouch very low, and possibly lay on the ground to see it.
The sight glass is in the right side cover towards the back and at the bottom.

If your oil is in need of changing and has turned dark in color(black). The sight glass isn't so visible when the oil is black.

Thats how you check the oil level with the bike off the kicksatnd and you holding it staight up, while looking at the sight glass.

How do i know if my zusuki boulevard m50 needs more oil

This bike does not have a dipstick to check the oil; Instead there is a sight glass located low on the right side of the crank case. If you look closely at the sight glass, you will see the index marks off to one side of the glass. The bike must be level and horizontal to get a correct reading, NOT on the side stand.

83 goldwing gsl 1100 where do we check oil

As stated in the previous reply, it has a sight glass. The sight glass is on the right side of the case, near the fill hole. If looking at the fill hole, look just below it and to the right about 2 inches. You may need to use a small flat blade screwdriver to turn the wiper arm for the glass, so that it cleans it off for a better view.
