As far as I know Donny, they work just like any other oiler. THey just have a big fancy lever that you rotate for adjustment instead of a little knurled knob for adjustment. Also the top piece over the glass has notches to hold the handle where you put it once you get it adjusted. I've never had one, so maybe I'm missing something. Kevin

Donny, this is what the Lunk book says about a swingtop oiler. I haven't one cause they're very pricey.

Donny; Just put some oil in it and turn the arm counter clockwise and watch how many drops per minute of oil comes out at the different notches. When you turn off the engine, you turn it clockwise to shut off the oil till the next time you run the engine and then set it at the desired notch.
