I am the custodian of a rather nice 12HP horizontal S type engine, fitted with a two-port Madisson Kipp mechanical oiler. This is my first engine fitted with a mechanical oiler, so I’m perhaps looking for a little reassurance. The engine (currently) runs unloaded at around 350rpm for show purposes and the mechanical oiler drips at about 1 drip every 5 seconds. But I note from the S Type operators manual I have here that the rates are much, much higher. Does anybody have any accurate information as to at what rate I should be oiling at, as the figures in the manual seem rather excessive - although I do know that oil is cheap, bearings aren’t! I have a nice steady ‘drip’ of oil from the exhaust pot drain cock whilst the engine is running and I get a small amount of oil manually ejected from the crankcase drain every hour or so. Assuming the rate needs increasing, how is this archived on the Madisson Kipp 30 Oiler I have? Many thanks for any advice.
