BP clone leaking oil

<< < (3/3)

 Was going down the wrong road, read ISO 68. Then thinking ISO 68 is ISO 68 and not giving proper consideration to the additives. Did know 90W gear lube was not going to work, and not used.

Reading it's normal for some lubricant to be weeping in the quill area. And one of those never discussed normal related events outside of the shop environment.

 Changed back to the spindle oil.

Over night bearing destruction was funny had a mental picture of a worry wart running around with hair on fire. LOL.

Thanks for the education and the laugh...


I’m using what the manual says “spindle oil 10 wt”  no gear oil, just seems to be leaking more than it used to. Sounds and runs great
