Do I have to change oil an injector pump please say no...?

Geez. Every time I think I have my arms around knowing what I need to learn to handle my immediate maintenance needs I come across something else. I keep seeing references to changing the oil in a "Simms" injector pump? Is this only on Ford Lehman 120's or is that true of my FL SP135's? I don't see any mention of it in my manual but I haven't read the manual word for word yet. Am I lucky and have oil going through it from my lube system with no need to change it every 50 hours as discussed in other threads? I repeat, please say yes?!?!?!?

The 120's need the oil changed in the injector pump, the 135's do not need the oil changed since it is changed with the engine oil.

Awesome. Thanks. I can put the gun down now. It was a water gun but still...those things can sting a fella if he aims it just right.
