Picked up a cool period accessory last week (saw it on the auction site, had to have it, paid too much for it...you know the drill).

It's a "Craveroiler" (similar to a Marvel Mystery Oiler). Tag reads;

Craveroiler - The combustion chamber lubricator
Craveroiler Co. of America
Mfd. by Towne & Clark MFG. Co. Philadelphia, U.S.A.
Pat. May 6, 1925 Others Pending
Warning - Use only Craveroil

Here's a before shot;



And after a gentle cleaning;



I took it apart, made new gaskets, put it back together and filled with Marvel Mystery Oil. Anyone know anything about "Craveroil"??

Gary, A good friend of mine has a NOS one in the box. The paper work describes all the benefits and a warning "Caution use only genuine Craver oil". He's very proud of it and has picked out a very special spot for it on the fire wall of his 27 Buick. I don't know for sure Gary, It may be to late for you, by putting MMM in it you could have voided the warranty. :-)

LOL!

Do you think he would mind sharing a copy of the paperwork? I'd like to see what it says!

Gary

Gary, He doesn't have a computer but the next time I go to his place, I'll take some pictures for you.
