Hi,i am guessing you have a gs850g,if so the diff housing has two holes,one for draining,and one for filling,the lower of the two is for draining ,the upper of the two is for filling,to drain the diff oil simply undo the bottom of the two plugs and let the oil drain out,to refill simply replace the drain plug,undo the upper of the two plugs(this should be a relatively large one)refill with a good quality (normally 80-90w)gear oil,(the diff should hold about 400-700mls depending on model)simply fill the diff housing with oil untill it starts to dribble out of the filler hole(this is the correct lubricant level),then replace the plug,thats it ,very simple,i normally do the one in my 650 katana about every 30000km,to my knowledge there are no other lubrication points in the driveline,except the axle spline shaft which slides into the universal joint at the back of the gearbox,but this is normally fairly maintanence free as it is sealed from the environment by a fairly substantial rubber boot and shouldnt need looking at unless the rubber boot has been split or has perished,,hope this helps

My pto engages on the highest level for my deck on my mtd lawn tractor. Highest my deck will go is 5. But when I put it to 4 ir even 3 the pto cuts out. But as soon as you return it to 5 it starts


Owner's manual? no manual, try for both owner and Repair manual on manualslib.com
Wild guess, the angle of the PTO drive shaft related to the height of the deck is causing a problem. Perhaps it's binding and won't turn, or pops out because of the binding and load. Perhaps the drive shaft is not "locked" on for some reason, with pins or
another device. Perhaps the sliding portion needs lubrication.

How much/what type of oil goes in my old wormdrive saw?


their owners manual doesn't give an exact quantity however they say to unplug the tool first then remove the fill plug and the lower plug and the oil should run out past the first thread. they recommend using their oil 80111 8 oz. tube however any good worm drive lubricant will work, Don't use anything like gear lube because the worm drive lube has an additive for anto foaming. Let me know if you need more assistance

Janome SD-2014 sewing machine dogs fails to operate in reverse


The grease has hardened and that is what makes it not work. You need to remove the spring and clean all the old grease off it. You can put new grease on if you want but it isn't necessary. The machine should be lubricated with a good quality sewing machine oil(not 3 in 1). You need to oil any place that moves and rubs, This includes the ends of each shaft, the needle bar and the cinnecting links that drive the needle bar. Nothing is permanently lubricated.. you'll find this machine will run much smoother and quieter with fresh lubrication.As a matter of fact, if you use the machine a lot, it should be lubricated once a year and never less thanonce every 5 years.
One more thing. If it is on the main shaft that it has hardened you can spray it with a mixture of fantastic, water and some ammonia. Free it up and give it a light shot of oil.
