horizontal shaft oil question
- In this photo
you can see something in the casting parallel with the shaft. On my
lathe there was a VERY dirty felt held in by a spring and a set screw.
My machine is oiled by the oilers that are on the top of the "frame
horns". The two manuals I have (1 from Parts Works, and the US ARMY
MANUAL I downloaded) don't show anything in the holes where the
felt/springs are. Should I get new felts/springs to put in there or
should I just block the holes and let the void act as a sump for the
oil that goes in from the top. If I need to put the felt back in where
can I get the proper felt and spring from.
Thanks in advance,
PS I have a 1962 10K, horizontal drive
PPS sorry for crossposting this but I'm stumped and stalled
