Other than I have one? I can tell you how to adjust the feed rate. (the collar around the plunger screws up and down) I just learned how to do THAT last week.

About all I know

you are talking about the the part that pumps not the nuts on the top? I have a continental gin engin 55h oil engine and it goes on it it is a 5 site oiler and the journal bearing slung in the engine and our thinking was that the oiler wasnt oiling enough so i tested the oiler with a 100 psi gage and it peged out with two pumps on each site so i dont think that it was the problem. how much pressure should it put out? thanks!!!

The threaded part that sticks out the top that has the little plunger that goes up and down in the center. The further down you screw the collar, the longer the pump's working stroke. We found that out almost by accident while looking for a regular adjusting "screw".
