Hobart Steakmaster Tenderizer


I just acquired a Hobart Steakmaster Tenderizer Model 403 with a gearbox leak at the bottom inspection plate. What type of oil is used to fill these gearboxes? It smells and feels like 90 weight differential oil, like is used in car but I wanted to make sure.

Also, from what info I have found so far, the gasket looks like it is magnetic and covers the entire inspection plate. I generally use a gasket sealer on automotive repairs so I guess should use it when I reassemble the gearbox??

So far the cheapest gasket I have found is about $22 + shipping. If anybody knows of a reliable supply house with competitive prices on Hobart parts please send me a private message.

I've already downloaded the Spec Sheet, Owner's Instruction Manual, and Parts List from the Hobart site but none of the above is cited in their manuals.

Thanks in advance,
dirt-road

Good luck finding parts. Hobart is one of the most protective manufacturers in aspect to supplying parts.

What I would do is try to find out what company actually made that machine. Most of hobarts equipment is made by third party vendors, or other companies that they bought out. Some of these companies still exist, and are usually more than happy to help you.

If the lubricated parts do not come in contact with food then its probably regular 90 weight gear oil. If the lubricated part does contact food, then use food grade mineral oil

Thanks Master. The gearbox is isolated so there's no danger with it contacting the food. I had forgotten that mineral oil was originally used in my old Ford 8N's gearbox and differential so it should certainly work in the tenderizer. I was concerned the shaft seals on the tenderizer may not like 90 weight so I am going to try to find food grade mineral oil first. Thanks again; dirt-road.
