Drain out the remaining oil and if you can get just a clear mineral oil fine, otherwise standard gear oil would work also i.e. 80/90 weight

What kind of oil do i put in my skill saw 77

This saw requires Skil's heavy-duty, worm-drive oil, part number 80111. If you can find a local vendor that has some great otherwise, type 'skil 8011' in your search engine and shop around for an 8oz tube, they can run from $5 to $10 plus shipping.

I have an old Milwaukee 6378 worm drive saw (8.25") and it leaks a little on the front end. Not much but it is caked with oil soaked sawdust. I am going to change the gasket behind the red plastic "hood"....

If you put in the gasket (p/n43-44-0240) like you stated, and install a lock spindle service kit (pn14-46-1365) that should cure most or all of the leaks. The lock spindle kit comes with 2 o-rings and a new cap,one o-ring seals the cap and the other seals the pin. The only other thing that leaks once in a while is the armature seal (p/n45-06-0280) but to change it requires you to dismantle almost the entire saw, it you don't see any oil around the motor then its probably ok.

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

What do I use for oil and how much should I have in my worm drive skil saw? I've had it for 5 years and never done anything to check the oil level.

just to the top of the filler hole no more than that, any oil will do,but lighter the better,,, if its not leaking it may not need any,,,rember the old saying,,,,,,,,,,,,
dont try fixing what not broken, or to put it another way,,, its serviced by disaster!!!

I need to know how much oil goes into a skilsaw worm drive resvr.

Haven't heard anything so I checked the Milwaukee worm drive saw and they recomment about 1/2 oz. Make sure you use an oil for a worm drive that is not foaming. Hope this helps. Also when checking oir level have the shoe set for max depth and on a flat surface remove the oil plug, when filling tip the saw on its side and fill, turn back over and allow excess oil to run out if overfilled.
