Just a couple of drops of engine oil in each oiler on your generator. Dont pump any more than that otherwise you will end up with oil on the commutator and the brushes which will stop it charging. Regards, Kevin.

There is a wick that goes to the oil impregnated rear bushing so a couple of drops will do. If you have that nipple out use Teflon tape, it is a pile thread .
