PHOTO CORRECTED BY MODERATOR. I received my new-to-me Universal III AB this week and have been dutifully cleaning and oiling this magnificent press. In the process I’ve run into a snag owing to my lack of experience with small motors. I cannot figure out where to oil the motor. Hoping someone may have experience with this model.
The motor which drives the inking is clearly not the original Reliance model, but a Janette motor with these specs:
Janette Model AW, 1/12 HP, 1725 input rpm, 108 output rpm
There are three caps on the top of the motor. The middle cap has a small hole in the side (breather?) The furthest cap out has a loosely crimped-on top that spins freely. (see photo)
I am also unsure of where to check the oil level on this motor and whether or not 20 SAE will be sufficient. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
