Generator rear bushing reservoir

Postby K_Wiz » Fri Dec 02, 2022 11:42 am

attachment=2]1D0DBC96-C1C5-49A8-B81A-00BA12D187F8.jpeg[/attachment]. I believe on the generator bushing side this is reservoir for oil. I believe there is supposed to be wool felt to wick oil from the reservoir to the shaft and bushing

. The plate that attaches on the back has a drain hole

Questions:
Am I correct that felt should wick oil to the bushing?

What should it look like?

The felt cut out in the picture is from my wife’s craft supplies. Is there a source that someone can direct me to?

Last question. What size oiler caps are used in the generator.

Thanks in advance

Hi,
I sent you a PM with info.

Yes, the felt is supposed to take oil to the bushing.
The felt is round, like a large string, and fits in the casting space in your 3rd pic above.
It doesn't originally use a flat felt.

The Delco part number of it in the Cub parts manual is 1947350, you can Google it and see what is there. :)

Thank you for the Message Glen. I was able to find 5ft of 1/4 round felt at

McMaster Carr
https://www.mcmaster.com/

Just search on felt. $7.00 for the Felt $7.00 for shipping. Only needed about 1 inch but I have piece of mind . If anyone needs felt send me a message.
