ChillWizzard pretty straight forward as I can lay the unit on the side. The pump housed in the BM sits sideways. How the best way to get oil in the whole if they are vertical?

Hmm, I’d consult it with Sabco. I’ve had my BM for over 9yrs, brewing 10 to 15 batches a year and never oiled the pumps. What kind of problems are you having?

Cheers,
Hooch

No problem, just maintenance. The spec say to oil every so many hours of run time. The oil holes sit horizontal. No easy way to put the oil in.

Wow, I never new. Since I have a ChillWiz V1, "the black box", it might be hard. I've had my unit for like 14 yeas or so.

Zoom spout oiler does a great job for me. The spout pulls out about 8" & the oil seems to work its way in just fine even though the motor is horizontal. I'm not recommending the seller at the link this link I think there price is a little high.
