Default Lunkenheimer Sentinel No.2 with Check Ball

I was looking through my collection of oilers for one to install in my 1920 Fairbanks Morse 1 1/2 horse engine and found this Lunkenheimer Sentinel No. 2 which has a lower fitting that is cross drilled and has a check ball. The size looks right to me for this little engine. Can anyone comment whether this is a suitable oiler for this application?

Sentinels never had check balls, someone added the ball. It might work in your application but it is not a proper cylinder oiler.

Thanks, I have about 2 dozen oilers so I might still have one. What exactly am I looking for in a cylinder oiler?

A cylinder oiler will be closed on top with a plug of some sort so it is air tight also they usually have a vent tube in them which goes from the sight glass to the top of the reservoir and usually a check ball in the bottom.
