Default International M 3hp Sight glass oiler.

Hi again...
I have just managed to get my IHC m runnig and it seems that the oiler is getting back pressure , Do the oilers on the M types have to have a check valve and a relief tube as mine does not and the oil seems to get blown back up the tube.

Many thanks for any help

Bob

Yes Bob, they need a check valve and a vent tube. When you have the tools and the skills you could made it your self.

Might you share some hints? i have a 20 hp oil city/south penn that has a tiny oiler on it now. i have a large unchecked and unvented oiler i sure would like to convert for this engine. Thanks for any information to keep me from hacking up the large oiler.

Exclamation Re: International M 3hp Sight glass oiler.

The IHC 'M' uses a sealed oiler with a check ball..Crankcase blow by pressure blows into the oiler, until pressure is equalized. The pressure then forces the oil into the oil supply tube during off peak pressure. The oiler should have a screw type oil fill, with a gasket, not the slip type closer. Also, and this is VERY IMPORTANT - make sure that the crankcase breather valve is installed, and it is working properly. It should only allow crankcase pressure to vent - not draw back. You can check this by placing your finger over the outlet as the engine is running. You should feel air come out, but not feel vacuum back. If the vent is not in place, install a replacement, or if it is blocked, it has to be cleaned. If the engine is not vented properly, it will blow oil all over the place!

You can drill a small(1/16) in.hole in the oiler pipe just below the oiler to let off the preasure.BobRR

Thanks guys,
I have installed a small check ball in the neck of the oiler and will fit a non return / check valve to the engine this will hopefully create some negative pressure in the crankcase and draw the oil into the crankcase.


Regards
bob
