Advice and recommendations

Post  lynnr on Tue 03 Jun 2014, 11:43 pm

Hi all

Can you give me recommendations for a new mechanical lubricator. My current one has completely stopped working. BTW it did work perfectly fine for the last 2 years. I am changing to the Hallett steam oil and it is a lot thicker than the Morrison I was using so think a beefier ratchet oiler will be better anyway.

Also I continue to have problems with the steam valve on the injector so would like to replace that as well. Can someone tell me the size to get and recommendation again please.

Happy steaming

hi lynn,
Live Steam Models do a nice ratchet type lubricator I bought one for my engine, looks the part and you can see its working unlike the roller clutch type.
hope that helps

Try RA Barker (Bruce) for both lubricator and globe valve.

Thanks for the recommendations.

Does anyone know the sizes of the injector valve and lubricator nuts please.

I think the oiler is 1/8" but not sure if I am measuring correctly.
