(back) Subject: Correct Lubrication for Zephyr Blower? From: "Dave McClellan" <drmc@speedfactory.net> Date: Wed, 3 May 2000 16:14:08 -0400   What is the correct lubrication for the bearings on an older Zephyr = blower? The outer bearing is marked "Link Belt Ball Bearing, Size 1, No. P-216 (or may be -218). Both inner and outer turbine shaft bearings have grease fittings. Can I use normal general purpose automobile type grease sold in cartridges for use in older auto suspension systems? Any special precautions during application with a hand-held grease gun?   I assume from previous postings that the correct lube for the 2HP Century motor with sleeve bearings is 30 weight motor oil in the top cups = (observing the level in the lower cups).   Thanks, Dave      
(back) Subject: Re: [Residence Organs] Correct Lubrication for Zephyr Blower? From: <GRSCoLVR@aol.com> Date: Wed, 3 May 2000 16:33:34 EDT   Dave-- In my experience, Lubrico M-6 grease (Master Lubricants Co. Philadelphia) = is a good choice and recommended by many "earlier" manufacturers of original equipment. Any good ball bearing or cup grease should do the trick. = Remember that more bearings and machinery is ruined by overgreasing than undergreasing. In the old days,,,the "selection" of lubricants was not = nearly so sophisticated as it is today. You are correct, in my opinion, on 30 weight non detergent motor oil for = the sleeve bearings with oil slinger rings in the Century motors. Hope this helps, ---Roc
