i thought gass trans and rear end used 80/w 90 or you can drop the 75/140 syn in it them? syn is the way to go for the rear end and trans. i still use convention on the engine side. 10w30 is what i was told by my dealer, but they say sae 30 will be fine also.

there is no oil filter on your cart, if you have the flat top engine, if you have the ohv engine, it has the oil filter on the front driver side of it(under driver seat, driver side) get you a fuel filter , for a small engine, the unerversial 5/16 1/4 lien with the clear body to see whats in it will be fine. only need one, if you have 2 get 2 of the same filter. i found running NGK brand plugs work awesome on the cart, and thats what kaw. put on it from the factory. and air filter. rember these things have the choke before the filter, so make sure your air box is installed correctly! they can be easy to put on wobber jobber and look like they were put on right. when you try to drive it in the cold, it runs like poo! most arts are available commercialy. you do not have to go to a dealer, but your BGW sponsors would appricate it!

5 to 6 hrs? why dont you just use a cut off wheel to cross cut them them use your air hammer and knock the heads off? or do you like to beat the snot out of your wrist with a mini sledge and cold chisel?
no this was a wheel bearing that need adjusted, pull the cover and see shavings, pull the bearing and find half the race in the outer bearing. but the hub and find the outer bearing same. beat the races out and repalce with out any issues, find the spindle cut and gouged and have to ream it and shave it and sand it smooth to let the new bearing on. then have your supervisior say run the old bearing, causde if it came off iti will go back on......this my friend is why we only have 2 trucks left that have wheel bearing packed with grease, all others have been updated to wet bearings and hubs!

A 93 should have an OHV FE290!

You'll need:
  • 2 qts. of 10w-30 motor oil (conv. or synth. your choice!)
  • an STP 4967 oil filter or equiv. (again, the brand name is your choice)
  • 2 bottles of 80w-90 gear lube (conv. or synth. again... your choice)
  • a grease gun, and a tube of grease, (if you don't already have one)

Changing the motor oil and filter I'm sure is a "no brainer" for you, just don't overfill it!

One tip... when the oil is drained, turn the key on, (without starting it) and confirm the low oil light works!
(You should do this every time you change the oil!) and then of coarse, turn the key off!

Now... for the rear end:

your 93 should have a 2-part rear end, the top part is the transmission, and the bottom part is the trans-axle.
I've heard that the older CC manuals state that SAE30 should be used in the top, and 80w-90 should be used in the bottom,
I've also heard that 30w and 80w-90 are really not that much different, but some may argue that point!
My buddy has been using 80w-90 on both top and bottom on his 94, with no ill effects!

On the transmission, (top) you'll find the fill and drain plugs on the passenger side of the unit, 8 o'clock and 6 o'clock:



On the trans-axle (bottom) you'll find them on the drivers side! (4 and 6)



Drain, and reinstall the drain plug, (yeah, I know... but it's happened!)
and fill it to the point of lube coming out of the fill hole on both top and bottom units. then reinstall fill plugs.

Grease the front end and you should be good to go!





I know... VERY detailed! but, I was bored!
