Jacks grease type and application process


Recommended Posts

I know I have previously  seen information on what type of grease to use and how to apply to the three jacks...but I can not find the information now. Where should look for a narrative and/or video to service the three jacks?

Thanks.

Thanks for the video information. Is there some information somewhere on grease application to the rear jacks?

Thanks for posting this video. For future reference, I tried to find it in the Resosurces section under Service videos of the forum and could not find it.

Is it only on YouTube and not on the Oliver Web Site?

The procedure is the same for the rear jacks as for the front.  The rear jacks are accessed through the lift-out panels under the bed or beds.

This OTT Service video is just about useless! If that's all you're going to do, don't bother, they would be better off sealed and left alone. 

@John E Davies wrote a how-to video. Then check page 2 where I added my update. I'm believe I'm the only one who worked the complete service, since where you really need new grease is under the gears and there is another step in removing them (see pic). What it looks like by merely removing the cover is insufficient, as you would not even see the worn grease underneath.

Check out this link and when you're done, watch the service video again for grins. 🤣

Although I use CV-2 grease on lots of things, I recommend staying with the Barker OEM grease (Mobil SHC Mobility SHC PM 460.  I purchased it from Amazon.  Reason is that to convert to CV-2 can be a true PITA to get it all.... and I do not recommend mixing greases.  Here are items I recommend you have:

Items Needed:

·        Cans of CRC Green  (NOT RED) due to plastics

·        New Gaskets:  Barker MFG Model Number 32453 https://www.barkermfg.com/  Gasket part # 29306 (3 Each).  They sent me some at no charge.  Be sure to tell them you are an Oliver owner!

·        Grease:  Mobil SHC Mobilith SHC PM 460 (Amazon Prime). 

·        Silver Paint Marker

·        Black Nylon Ties

·        2 OZ Syringe (Optional)

·        5/32” Allen Wrench

·        5/16” and 3/8” sockets for ¼” Drive Ratchet

While you are servicing the jacks, be sure to also check their mounting bolts.  Attached are summaries on "how to" that I downloaded.  Cuddo's to John Davies for the original posts, and others for some of the edits.
