Default Fairbanks T Oiler

On a 1915 Fairbanks T, there are oilers for each side of the crankshaft. Then there is an additional oiler on one side which goes to the side where the crankshaft can be removed. What is the purpose of that oiler?

The carburetor/mixer has two compartments. Was one side used for kerosene and the other for gas?

The oiler you describe should be the cylinder oiler , providing oil to the piston. The mixer is of the spill over type and should have 2 lines attaching to the bottom. One line supplies fuel while the other is a return line back to the fuel tank. There should be a fuel pump which supplies a constant supply of fuelto one side of the mixer and the excess is returned to the tank by the other line. Hope this helps.
