    Hello, just bought a 8ft western v box salt spreader. The guy i bought it from said it worked a few years ago but has been sitting since. Any suggestions as to lubricating the chains?? I have heard that diesel works pretty good, is there anything else i should try??I can get the motor all tuned-up etc. but my main concern is the conveyor and bearings.

    Thanks guys in advance !!!
