Hi all
I have one of these I am hoping to use.
It needs a little repair and then recomissioning.
Does anyone have any info on them?
I can post pics if I can work out how to do it!
Thanks in advance

My engine is a locomobile type.
What lubricators do other people use on these?
As I'm not sure if the Detroit I picked up will be suitable.

Hi,
Originally a displacement type was used, but now some people fit mechanical lubricators on their engines, such as those used on miniature traction engines. Hope this helps.
George.
