603 Fremont St., Middleville, Michigan 49333 and with the kind permission of International Harvester Company, 401 North Michigan Ave., Chicago, Illinois 60611, we will be printing a series of interesting information from the book 'Internal Combustion Engines and Tractors'. Anyone having tractors will find them very valuable and those who do not have tractors, will find the data interesting. This second one may be of help to anyone who has a tractor that uses this type of lubricating system, as it contains information on the proper oiling of these tractors.)

MECHANICAL LUBRICATOR

Fill with good grade of heavy gas engine cylinder oil. Turn the crank on the mechanical oiler 40 to 50 times when starting the engine. This oiler is set to feed the requisite amount of oil, and should require no further adjustment.

 

IMPORTANT

In cool or cold weather the oil in lubricator tank must be warmed, as it will not flow readily unless of the right temperature.

G

TRANSMISSION

In warm weather, use heavy oil such as '600' transmission or Polarine transmission oil; in cold weather, use a good light oil.

S

GOVERNOR

Cylinder oil in governor should cover shoe.

M

MAGNETO

Oil magneto bearings once a week with sewing machine or cream separator oil
