Default Correct Oiler/Greasers/Magneto for FM "Z" Type

I have a 1927 Spoked Wheel throttle governed 1 1/2 hp "Z" type that is missing the oiler & greasers.
Could anyone possibly tell me which brand of oiler & what size they would of been fitted with originally.
I found a greaser to fit the RHS main bearing but it won't fit the LHS bearing
so I need to find out what the original thread size/guage was.
Being an American engine would the thread be NPT?.
Most of the stuff here in Australia is BSP so somebody could have changed
it at some stage I guess.
Also what Magneto would have been standard on this model ?.
Any help appreciated.
Lachlan.

My engine is same, but 1920 with Bosch AB33 mag. Probably FBM used different oiler vendors over the years. Mine is Michigan #3, but no way to know if original.
Bearing greasers are stamped steel, 1 1/2 inch diameter, but no markings. Looks like 1/4 inch nominal pipe thread.
