In my manual they have diagrams with oil can picture with either an E, M, or B. What do those letters stand for?

I'm not sure since I can't see which manual your looking in, but my guess would be the frequency that you oil the related parts.

Where in NY are you blazen?

1) The E symbol in oil can means apply engine oil. 2) The M symbol in the oil can means apply molybdenum disulfide oil. 3) The B symbol in a grease gun means apply lightweight lithium grease. 4) The M symbol in a grease gun means apply molybdenum disulfide grease.
