If the instructions do not give you an answer to your question and you can't find any information from the manufacture I would proceed as follows. The oil coming out of the breather is due to the splashing of the oil and the heating of the parts as they work building up pressure. I would tend to believe that as long as there is some coming out there is enough oil to take care of the gearbox.
If there is a separate plug to remove to add oil to the gearbox I would use that as my fill level. I hope this helps.

Oil leak from my SSangyong Rexton 2.7XDI continues to be a problem


drain /remove the oil until the correct level is obtained on the dip stick for starters . Next the "O" ring seal on the side of the box at the harness should be fitted with the use of a sealant ( locktite blue or red) in to a dry hole and allowed to skin . Incorrect fluid levels will cause the oil to aerate and flow out of any breather holes and will pressurize the transmission placing a strain on any seal .

Engine oil draining away, no leaks, gurgling sound coming from gearbox breather..


Hello, you will find that the seal between the gearbox and motor is leaking, check your gearbox oil, it should be getting close to coming out of the gearbox breather (over full), do not ride, you will damage and burnout your gearbox.

I am looking for assistance with my transmission for the truck mentinoed (1994 chevy sierra c1500). the seals have expanded and the fluid has leaked out.


I assume it's a manual transmission,
Check that the gearbox air breather vent is not blocked. If so, top up with gearbox oil and re-check for leaks.
Replace all leaking seals, if cleaning the breather doesn't fix it.

Badger plus auger runs, but the auger doesn't spin


Here's a online free manual you can download and print for a Tanaka post hole digger, as your title stated that's what you have.

http://www.tanaka-usa.com/pdf/manuals/TIA-340-350S.pdf

However, I noticed that you wrote you have a Badger Plus auger, so I tried to find info on that, but a manual doesn's exist outside the manufacturer, you can call them to see if they'll mail you one.

I's suggest you look at the gearbox, as it sounds as if you've sheared a key inside the gearbox on the main drive shaft, based on your description. The gear box is straightforward with a simple 12:1 gear reduction ratio and uses only two (2) gear wheels and shafts.

I couldn't attach the picture but here's a link that will show the gear box, just scroll down once it loads. It should be easy to open and repair the gearbox, as there isn't much to it. Drain the gear oil and separate the halves and you can check for a sheared key on either of the gear wheels and replace the broken one. They're designed to shear to prevent damaging the more expensive gear wheels, etc.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Hello:

Most 2 Cycle Engines use a 32:1 or 40:1 Fuel Mix Ratio.
The Newer 2 Cycle Engines use a 40:1 or 50:1 Fuel Ratio.
For Better Performance and to be sure you have Plenty of Oil to the Engines Internal Components, I Suggest (and I Use) a 32:1 Ratio in All my Equipment except for Post Hole Diggers.
Post Hole Diggers Use a 25:1 Fuel Ratio.
Hope this Helps.

Good Luck

Hilux leaking gear oil


There is a plug on the side of the gear box. Pull plug out. You should be able to stick your finger into the hole and touch the gear oil. If not, check on your owner manual and see what type of oil goes back into the gear box. Fill it up until it start coming out of the plug hole.put plug back in, & back to riding.

Are when you go to the oil change shop???? Get them to show you where it is at, and get them to top it off for you.???

Digger how to


Hammer rebar into the ground to create pathways for water. Grab a hose and soak the ground to soften it before using the post hole digger. Wait until the water has had a chance to soak in. Raise the post hole digger and drop it, jaws open, into the ground. The jaws will cut into the ground and soften it even more for removal. Continue to use the weight of the post hole digger for the hard work, circling around the edge of the hole. Drop the digger down with force once you've loosened up a circle of soil. Open the handles to grab a bite of earth in the jaws and lift it out. Continue with Steps until you've removed all the loose soil, making a hole 1 foot in diameter.

Search local home and garden stores to find a post hole digger. Many department stores sell post hole diggers too. A local greenhouse or tractor supply store is also a good place to look for a post hole digger. Decide on he type of digger you'll need for the job. Although post hole diggers come in different sizes and types, they generally dig the same size hole. Know that it takes a lot of strength to dig holes with a post hole digger, but there are a diggers available with special features that allow someone not quite as strong to use the digger too. Pick up and examine the different post hole diggers while you're shopping. Compare the feel and weight of the tools. Pretend to dig holes and see how it handles. Compare the features and designs of different post hole diggers. Most are manufactured from fiberglass or steel, but some have a different shaped handles for specific digging jobs. Determine if you'd rather have a fiberglass handle or a wooden one. Fiberglass is lighter and more resistent to sun damage than wooden handles. Select a post hole digger based on your preferences, the job required and who'll be using the tool. Plan to spend more on a post hole digger that's made from steel or for heavy duty use. The range for a post hole digger is generally under $50.
