Clock oil, and a very small drop on each bushing, and pivot not on the gears in between the plates. Do not get oil on the hair spring if it has a balance wheel escapement. After oiling it's good to wiggle each gear back and forth to work the oil in. Good Luck in your adventure.

What type of grease do I use on my elna 305 sewing machine.

NO grease!!! Best option is to pick up sewing machine oil sold by Elna--make sure it is the oil recommended for your model. For a computerized machine, apply only as directed in the owner's manual. Computerized machines usually take a clear, thin oil whereas mechanical machines usually take a thicker, lemon-colored oil. To keep your machine purring, AVOID old or inexpensive sewing machine oil. If it is an older mechanical machine, a drop or two can be applied every place where metal rubs against metal--do NOT oil nylon gears, belts, etc.

Hi John, These days most oils are formulated to be used in both petrol and diesel engines but those formulated specifically for diesels should not be mixed. If your talking of a top up I suggest a flush with a good quality chemical and a lub service. If you have had a service carried out and changed the type of oil the same applies. Mixing oils can cause fast sludge build up which can block the filter, oil pump and galleries. These days most oils are designed to run both types of engine, but mixing is neve a good idea. Regards John

The check engine light stays on after oil change. When you apply the brakes the steering wheel vibrates and there is a weird humming type noise coming from the rear while idling.

Hope the oil filter was changed and with the OE type and the correct oil grade.
If so the oil pressure switch can be clogged and so produce the check engine light.
When applying brakes the steering vibrates as it can be due to faulty linkages in steering column, problem in the hydralics pump or fault in the steering rod bearings.
finally the weird noise from rear can be from a faulty exhaust , leak or poor joint in the exhaust or vibration of the exhaust with loose mountings.

I have a b and d alligator lopper that has never been used, but no manual. How is the chain lubricated? Type of oil? How is oil applied? Thx.

Information on your product, inlcuding a link to the Manual may be found here:

A high quality bar and chain oil or SAE30 weight motor oil should be used for chain and bar lubrication.

The use of a vegetable based bar and chain oil is recommended when pruning trees. Never use waste
oil or very thick oil. These may damage your chain saw.

- Before first use and every ten minutes of use you must oil the product with the recommended chain oil. Open the oiling cover and insert the bottle into the oil filling hole apply pressure to the bottle once to dispense oil.

- This should be adequate for about 10 minutes of cutting depending upon cutting speed and type of wood.

- The hole feeds the oil through to the chain onto the chain bar and an excessive amount of oil applied to the unit could mean the oil drips from the unit around the jaw area. This is normal and is nothing to be concerned about.

I need to know if my jackhammer needs to be oiled?

If it is air driven, it requires 'air tool oil' applied to the air connection of the tool. The rotary mechanism in small drill types requires heavy grease lubrication applied occasionally. Hope this helps!

Our Canon IR2200 model is making squeaky highpitched noices when it copies. We're thinking it needs some lubrication, any suggestions? PS. If oil is needed, where do we apply the oil and what type of...

Regular oil applications is a necessity in order to combat the squeaks of a copier, as for where to oil and what type of oil to use; I suggest going to radio shack (or similar) and picking up a pen-type lubricator, as it makes it much easier to reach tight spots and it is also rated for electronic use. Do not use WD40 or any other petroleum based oil, as this will cause vital components to breakdown and literally melt away. As for where to apply it, you may apply several drops to any gear, motor, clutch, roller; really there is no restriction, just anywhere that may have friction points. With this type of lubricator, you do not have to worry about destroying circuit boards, as only a small amount comes out and it is rather viscous so it will not drip.

Hope this helps,

Changing the oil filter on a lawn tractor

If it is a screw on type oil filter, apply a film of oil on seal, then screw on. If you want to, go ahead and pour some oil in the filter, in my opinion the oil will circulate faster if there is some oil already in the filter.

What type of oil I use

The Remington manual for model 111409-01 states: "This Pole Saw requires lubrication only to prevent rust on the guide bar and saw chain. The saw chain provided is pre-lubricated at the factory. With each use of the Pole Saw apply a small amount of lubricating oil directly to the saw chain (see Figure 8). The oil will distribute itself around the chain and guide bar groove during use?preventing rust. We recommend using SAE #30 motor oil for lubrication and rust prevention."
