Mystery Item

Postby Richard » Sun Apr 18, 2010 2:04 pm

Hi All. Hope someone can shed some light on what the little oilers in the following are called. They are on my style 1 but i have seen them used on various engines. As you can see, one of them is broken (cap missing). If i knew what they were called i could google it...

No, nothing comes up for that. Eventually found they are known as "Flip-Top Oil Cups" !

I must admit I would have just called them oilers, the probelm with modern machines is they don't have them you through them away when the oil runs out!

Hi Banjo. Thanks for the link. Unfortunately no thread on the bottom. I ended up sourcing some from the US and then adding my own thread (welded a bolt to the underside of them with a hole drilled). I will have some picks of the painted engine shortly.
Kind Regards
