Hi All From Cold In Iowa: Help! I need to find a source for the round glass cylinders to go in the replacement for the lower petcock to be able to see the Oil level. I have several with cracked glass & would like to repair them? Thanks John

John,

Use clear plastic instead. It won't break as easily. As David suggests, try McMaster Carr. I bought some there for a Model N oiler.

An alternative is the local High School Chemistry teacher.They usually have pyrex tubing and can cut you a short piece.

Boiler site glass is what I used in mine
Try hit miss enterprises or restoration supply
Drip oiler glass was another option depending on the outer dia.
