Re: (ET) tiller

Filling it with oil did not seem correct to me based on the tiller that I recently acquired,so I asked the fine folks at Brinly-Hardy Co., who made the tiller for GE and they responded with the following...

"The chain is in an enclosed area, but it will not support an oil bath. I think a good grease that is intended for chain use would be the best. Check at your local farm implement dealer and they will be able to recommend a grease that works well on chains. Depending on the amount of use, you may want to strip the grease to clear dirt and re-apply."

Can someone tell me where to check the oil level in the tiller chaincase
from the jackshaft to the tiller shaft  ?  Or is there one ?

There's a bolt on the back top of the chaincase and a drain at the bottom.

I just filled it with 85/120 gear oil.
