My manual is buried deep in some box somewhere.  Does anyone know the procedure for oiling the water pump on the Genie, and will 3 in 1 oil work for it?

 To oil the leathers:Diamond Pacific says to use one drop of 30 weight motor oil. Remove the left hood. The pump then will be exposed. Remove the Red, (Middle) screw and place the drop in the screw hole. Then replace the screw. To oil the pump bearings: Remove the corner, (Red) screw. Place one drop of 30 weight motor oil in the screw hole that is painted in the bottom pump block, not in the top where the screw was removed. Do not use to much oil. Replace the screw. Ta Da! Your done! These are instructions for a new machine. I am not sure of older machines. I am pretty sure it will work for you. Hope this helps. Eric.

I take it 3 in 1 oil isn't 30 weight.

Are we talking 10W-30?  5W-30?

Wow Eric, you just keep that in your head, huh?  I recently bought the pump and hose maintenance kit for my Genie.  I will have to open it and check out what it has to say.  Its just a shrink wrapped package about 3" x 3" with 2 coiled up hoses and pump leathers, etc.  Haven't been able to get to it with my shoulder, but I would really like to get the pump cleaned up and put new "clear" hoses on it.  So, also, thanks for the info.

I use the 10W 30. It seems to work fine. The instructions does not specify. Eric.

For many lubrication applications such as motors and shaft bearings it is best to use a non-detergent straight 30 wt oil. This information came from discussions with an engineer who works for the company from whom I purchased my milling machine. You can usually find it in most auto part stores...
