How often should the oil be changed in the pan where the gear runs thru?
This is the upper visible oil dish not the lower gear box oil.

I know a car is every 3000 miles.

Thanks

Every couple years has been fine for me. I think if you run a stoker cover and have a clean cellar, every 3-4 years is plenty. It is a very small amount of oil, and small cost. Do the gearbox at the same time, and put a few drops in the oil holes on the connecting rod a few times per season.

How do you change the oil in the gear box?

Here's a forum description with lots of pictures of how to do it. The oil change is about 1/4 down the page.

Which gear box do you have? New or old style?
