How to check oil on honda gx160

There is an oil dipstick on the side of the engine. Remove the dipstick and check the oil on the dipstick.
The oil should be about half way up the threads on this engine.
If you need to add oil you can use SAE 30 or a 10W30 Oil.

Transmission oil dipstick.....

You are correct and the size to remove it would be a 3/8" allen wrench. The dipstick should be on the right side of the bike where the clutch cable goes into the right side transmission cover and it will take roughly 22 ounces of transmission oil, that level should be checked with the bike upright and level and just put the dipstick in its hole so the bottom threads of the dipstick touch the top threads of the cover.

My sewing machine gears jammed.

One or more of the bushings is seized, the machine needs to disassembled, the bushings removed, cleaned, re-lubricated. Not something you can do yourself.

How much oil is in an Ariens 5 hp snowblower ?

5 hp should have 20 oz.
When checking,
1) fill the oil to top of threads (if the inspection cap is threaded into the side of the block close to the bottom)
2) if it has a dipstick, wipe the stick as you remove it, re-insert *do not screw it down, just allow it to set on top of dipstick housing.

*note: you cannot overfill unit on an inspection cap
*** you CAN overfill on a dipstick. Any more than 22-24 oz, the engine will blow it out the valve cover breather hole.
