Default oiler question

Are the Lunkenheimer swing top oilers able to hold pressure I need one for my 6 Horse M and I want to get a swing top if it will work and I read here some where that the ones for the Ms should be able to hold pressure to help keep the blow by out of the oiler. If I have all this wrong tho please let me know I have a paragon on it now and even with the check valve I put in I still get oil splashing all over the place and I am conderned I am not getting enough oil to the wrist pin Joe M.

joe
if you put a tee under your oiler it will let the presure off and it will work

Exclamation Re: oiler question

You want to make sure the crankcase check valve is operating properly. It should vent air and excess oil from the crankcase and should not allow air to be sucked back into the crankcase. I do not believe the swing top oilers are sealed types. If you put a tee under the oiler, you stand a chance of 1) making an oily mess of what ever is in front of the open end of the tee , and 2) the piston and wrist pin will probably starve for oil, as there will be an escape of air thru the open pipe, from within the crankcase . Replacement oilers can be had from Hit & Miss (they advertise here on Harry's site)

Some M's have more blowby then others, you need an oiler with check ball and vent tube and most importend a closed FILLER SCREW. As soon the pressure is equal it drips the way you set the needle. Believe me just 5 drops a minute is more then enough.

Thnx John that is exactly what i am looking forI tried the tee trick and since I have a good bit of time in the finish on the engine I was not pleased with the end result at all so I tried the check valve under the oiler and I still don't think it is right. does the Essex oiler have a check ball internal in it already? and if it does I assume i won't need the one I made for mine thats under it. Thnx Joe M.

Yes Joe, the essex has already a check ball in it. Using an oiler like this, you don't need your home made check valve. Take care.
