    Default 10EE front bearing reservoir drain plug

    OK guys I give up. I looked for an hour on the machine and in 2 10ee manuals for the drain plug for the front bearing reservoir. Then I spent 4 hours going thru youtube videos hoping one of them would show draining the oil for maintenance or rebuild but no luck. I'm going to die of old age looking if someone doesn't tell me where it's at. Thanks.

    There's a drain for the headstock on the left side of the headstock under the top cover (probably have to take top and bottom covers off to use it). The bearing reservoirs don't have separate drains but I imagine you could drain them by pulling the oil sights (if you've got a 3 sight headstock).

    You can see the end of the drain line and cap on the right side of this image, just to the left of the stop rod:

    I'll try that. And thanks. My headstock has 3 sight glasses (plus the one for the QCGB)and I'm removing them all to clean off the oil stain to make the oil level easier to see.

    That's the best thing to do. Get everything cleaned, resealed and topped up with fresh juice. Don
