Benny:

Most of these old engines have such low loads on the timing gears all you need to do is put a couple of drops of oil on 'em once in a while. As long as the gears are slinging a little bit of oil, there's enough.

Take care - Elden

Benny,i have always used the same grease as I use in the grease cups and remember a little goes a long way and it don't have a tendency to sling off the way oil will. Joe Morris in east Tennessee.
