Bolens tiller question

michauxii(East Texas)February 29, 2012

I have an old 6hp Bolens front end tiller. Just changed oil. There is another "cap" right above the oil fill cap, and I'm unsure what it's for. Guessing it's some type of oil/lube for the gears.

Anyone know? Is there a drain plug for this AND what kind of lube and amount would I use?

Do you have a link or picture that will show the cap above the oil filler cap? loger

Concur. There have been tillers made under the Bolens name for many years. Until about 1988 they were FMC products, when they were sold to Garden Way when which in turn was sold to MTD in 2001. The old ones were gear drive. On vertical shaft engine models the transmission oil fill plug is on the right side at the bottom of the transmission housing.
