    Oil/axle fluid

    Hi guys, please bare with me, this is going to seem like a silly question. I went to change the oil this morning. I pulled the plug near the dip stick and drained. Thought that was it, went to fill it up again and there was still oil in the reservoir. So my question is where is the plug to drain the oil? Also where is the plug to add rear axle fluid? Behind and under the fuel tank?

    Starter is going on to get rebuilt, caved on me yesterday

    The answer to your questions and more are in the library. Now if I could just do the cool accent to go along with it. Check your serial number and print off the owners manual.

    Thanks ssmewing! It was a pain to get the hydro oil plug out, but after some cursing it released. One more stupid question. I have read the rotella can be used as engine oil, hydraulic oil, and rear end oil, correct?

    Thanks Willy,

    I read through that, question "Grounding the plugs" any suggestion on how to do this efficiently? also, the link suggested Rotella for the Hydraulic System, what about the engine its self? I have drained it, and read to refill via the dip stick tube?

    Thanks again

    I guess I'm bad,, I don't normally ground the plugs out. You can pull the spark plug cables off,, remove plugs, also a good time to check the plug gap,

    Yes, the motor is filled via the oil dip stick tube. A small funnel works good for that. I use a 10/30W grade oil for small engines. Canadian tire sells it, Walmart,, Some owners that I know, also use a regular engine oil, 10/30W.

    Rotella, is good for your hydraulics, and the gear case. It is a diesel oil, so I'd shy away from using that in my motor.

    I don't think that the owners manual says that. I would follow that over what you randomly read on the internet.

    What the Onan manual 965-0167/9-96 does say is the following. IMG_1302.jpg
    The newest Onan manual I have.

    Since this publication the API designations have changed a few times!
    So from my interpretation 15W40 would not be an issue during warm weather esp. in a well worn Onan.
    I have used Rotella 30W diesel during the summer without issue, my standard is 10W40 for warm weather 5W-30 during winter.

    IMHO quality, clean oil of the viscosity to match the conditions is the main consideration.
    I have seen starter mounts broken using heavy oil during very low temperatures.
    BTW my 448 owners manual states (use SAE 20W-40 if SAE 30 is not available) Air temp. above 30 deg. F (-1 deg, C)


    Thanks
    Jim
