Picked this up at a garage sale $10.00 , plugged it in it ran smooth sounded good . Anyone know if it is reversible and what kind of oil the oilers take . It’s big and heavy
Thanks

Yes it should be reversible; you need to locate the wires to the start winding inside and bring them out- it may be easy but on some motors is more difficult- you won't know until you open it up- may need to remove the rear end bell

What kind of oil would you put in the two flip top oilers ? Gona run it a while then open it up and check wires

20 or 30 wt. non-detergent oil would be best, if you need to use motor oil temporarily that would be ok
