Makita 5277B does not have a window or a mark on the side to indicate how much oil goes in the gearcase. The have a rubber stopper with a little tail on it. I am thinking you fill until it touches the tail. Of course they say you need to go to the service center and get it filled or changed.

Most likely it's time for a new Oil pressure switch, usually around 25 bucks, The little rubber stopper that detects how much pressure is in the oil journals is misreading, "Most Likely" due to age.. oil and rubber is not a good mix, the oil breaks down the rubber and it gets weak and sometimes leak.. You could also check to make sure you have a tight connector on the oil pressure switch.. Good luck..
Mix the fuel and oil in a suitable container that is airtight with a secure stopper to ensure the fuel mixture has a long shelf life. Keep the funnel, spout, container, etc., dry and very clean. Storing it all in a large plastic bag serves very well for this purpose.
Any quality engine oil can be used but an oil of the recommended type and viscosity will produce much better results. Purists and traditionalists still like to use vegetable oil but this has a very short useful life and dubious results. Self mixing 2-stroke oils are best and synthetic-based oils are reckoned these days to be superior.
Put fuel in the container first and then add the correct quantity of oil for the number of litres of fuel, close the container and shake with vigour for a few seconds and then transfer the fuel to the tool.
The number of ml of oil to use per litre of fuel will vary depending on the engine type, manufacture and age. The fuel/oil ratio is often marked on the fuel tank or cap, 30:1, 40:1, 50:1, etc.. 50:1 would require 20ml of oil per litre.
Some 2-stroke oil bottles have a useful measuring scale on the side...
That tool was discontinued in 1980 and parts are obsolete. You may be able to use a Skil 77 worm drive switch as many of the circular saw switches were configured the same. The switches are usually marked with a 1 and 2 on the back so make sure the wires are put on correctly as some will have the 1 on one side (top and bottom terminals) while others are on the top or bottom (next to each other).
the gearcase for this saw is under the blade and you would have to remove the blade and the screws holding the gearcase cover in place. There is a small amount of GREASE in this cavity. If you want to replace the grease use a small amount of white lithium type grease. DO NOT pack this area full or you will cause more damage. Let me know if you need more assistance and if you give me the model and brand I will locate a breakdown for you so that you know what is involved.
Hello. I would be happy to answer your question. The DPC7311 uses a glorifieds chainsaw engin and takes mixed fuel - I believe the manual says to mix the fuel:gas at 100:1, but that is with a specified Makita high performance oil. Most people mix it 50:1 and use normal two-stroke oil (actually it covers that in the manual also, I just found the info on page 12). The oil itself comes with the measuring cup (or marks on the side of a transparrent window), and has specific measurements listed on the container.
For your reference, I've included the links to the manual and the parts breakdown, both on this page. Hope this answer is what you need. Thanks.
I know the 88 model FLH's had them so it's a good bet that the Softails had them as well. Usually, the turn signal wires were grey in color. The had these little bands around them that indicated which side they went to. The violet marked wire goes to the right side signals and the brown marked wire goes to the left side. They did flash and I'm pretty sure they had the self cancelling turn signal unit on them. The unit is a "black box" unit about 1/2" thick by 1" wide by about an 1 1/2" long. It has a single plug on it. If you'll contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org , I'll send you a pin out and a trouble shooting guide. Remind me of what you need.
