Typical noob question...

What do ya'll (yeah, I'm from the south) recommend as far as upkeep on engines? For example, what do I oil and with what, etc? Sorry to be ignorant, but I firmly believe the only stupid question is the one you don't ask.

Lube engines

Lubriplate or an equivalent white grease is Ok for the plastic gears. Carefull on some of the oils, the detergent ones, such as WD-40 could hurt the plastic. Once a year if you run regularly. Remove excess to avoid picking up dust dirt which then can get on the brushes causing an open on the motor.
