Hi. Your mixer was manufactured in 1967. If you plan on keeping it, take the outer cover off, gently remove the two metal dust caps with a small screwdriver and look into each opening with a good flashlight to determine the quality and amount of grease in the trans. case.
Ideally the grease should almost fill the space with no oil visible. If you need to look further, I suggest that you open up the transmission cover, to determine the condition of the grease that lubricates the transmission. If you find that oil is seperating from the grease. you would do well to remove all of the oil and old grease and replace it with either Shell Darina EP-2, or Chevron FM ALC EP-2 grease. It's a messy job, but it will add years of life to your mixer.
Check the planetary seal, remove, clean and regrease the planetary gearing. With a mixer of this age, you never know if it has ever been serviced since it's manufacture or not. The grease must totaly encapsulate the trans. gears. As the grease breaks down it's level lowers and it leaves some of the upper gears without lubrication, and will result in preventable wear.
Good luck! If you found this solution helpful, please rate it. ricardok45

The Hobart/Kitchenaid model 4C Stand Mixer was produced between 1961 and 1977.
This unit is now a vintage piece chased by collector. Parts dealers do not sell parts anymore for such an old model.
The parts must be purchased on the second hand and vintage market, best source is Ebay. Put 4c mixer or kitchenaid 4c to find parts.
The bowl is easy to find, it is part 4162158, regular retail price for replacement is $44. buy the glass one on Ebay, that will be the original one mounted on first models.
Here Ebay list.

Here also a forum where you can contact more Kitchenaid vintage appliances owners or collectors.
The dough tool is not even easy to find on Ebay. Try contacting Kitchenaid and see if they can give you a compatible part.
If they have the original one (unlikely) , then do not be surprised if part price is over $30.
If you find a 4c with tools for spares on Ebay , buy it, and resell the parts you do not need. The whole mixer with bowl and one tool is worth over $50.
The original owners manual can also be purchased from Kitchenaid/hobart
