There was a little bit of oil in the bottom when I got it, I pressure washed the tamper and haven't seen oil since.
That's why I was wondering what type of oil to put in the cylinder, 90W gear oil?
I am pretty sure the whole problem lies within that cylinder, I'm just afraid of pulling it apart before fully understanding what could possibly be inside and how that works.
I will see if I can get a picture up tomorrow of the unit
It's beyond an oil issue, not an oil issue (at this juncture).
The vibrator is locked up. Could be a broken part inside. Could be the bearings are history.
