Default Powell Oiler

Greetings All, Thought I would stir things up a bit as its been quite on Smokestak on the Oilfield Site. Pictured is an early Powell 1pt. oiler made for the Bessemer Gas Engine Co. Been collecting bits and pieces for my F/T 10 hp. Bessemer Halfbreed for many years and this is one of them. Sometime in the past, part of the fill knob assembly parted ways. Hoping to find a different one or graft a piece on. Enuf Said.

I just sent an article about engine oilers in to the GEM. I included my instructions and parts breakdown for the Powel-Boson oiler. What is missing from the fill top? The bakelite handle or the whole thing? If just the bakelite handle, you can try a box store like Home despot or Lowes and have a look for a 2" diameter wooden drawer pull handle. It will be close in size, can be modifies to fit the stem, and be painted or stained to match the other handle on the admission cut off.

Greetings All, Thanks Andrew for the reply and forwarding the data. If you look closely the fill plug is broke off. The part the wood knob attaches to is MIA. Its a little different style than the later Powell Oilers. Enuf Said.

Maybe you could try some wooden toy wheels. I have seen some that are reasonably close to the original.

I've bought some wooden toy wheels online that very closely match the original knob. you just need to modify the hub to fit the filler cap spindle.
