Default Madison-Kipp Lubricator

I have a Madison-Kipp Lubricator Model 50. One of the three pumps does not pump oil at all. The adjustment screw binds when attempting to move it with a screwdriver. I don't want to force it for fear of breaking something. The other two pumps work fine. Does anyone have a manual showing an exploded view of the lubricator including instructions on how to repair the pump? I'm reluctant to disassemble the lubricator without knowing what I might be getting into. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Tom; I have fixed several of these for myself. Whenever I find one at a auction or swap meet I pick them up for parts if they are cheap. There are rights and lefts to the pumps and except for that they are interchangeable. You have to get the center shaft out first and then the pumps are easily removed. They are actually 2 pumps in one. One pump forces the oil into the window and is adjustable and the next stage forces the oil out into the bearings. Many times the pot metal eccentrics get into a bind and have to be replaced. The last I knew the Kipp lubricator co. was still in bussiness but parts were a little pricey. Good luck...
