Hey, all. I have a 2006 Lesco Space Saver, and the sticker on the gearbox of my Kawasaki FE170D is no longer legible.

Can anyone tell me what weight of oil I'm supposed to use in that gearbox? Thanks!

How sure is "pretty sure"? :laugh:
Does it have a hypro or udor pump? Either way SAE30 non detergent is generally the recommended pump oil.
Pump is immaterial. This is the gearbox.

Well, you're talking about a simple low rpm reduction gear. It's not rocket science.

If you are talking about the gearbox between the engine and a Hypro diaphragm pump then you would need 80/90 weight gear oil.

It can be found in good hardware stores, automotive parts stores and agricultural equipment stores.

Thanks, Robert. Just rebuilding my D403 to ready for sale. In fact, my rebuild kit and sight glass came from you guys.
