I was down at Cotton Ginning Days in Dallas NC last month and near where I had my trailer parked a vendor had a pair of Lunkenheimer grease cups,solid bronze and brass. One a Marine #3, holds over a full cup, and an Ideal #1, which holds over 1/3 cup. They met my need for shiny brass things and he only wanted $25.00 so I bought them. If only I could mount them on one of my cars....hmmm

That would make a great radiator ornament ! ; - )

With a name like Lunkenheimer how could you resist ? Heck, I'd buy one too !

What a great buy. It probably wasn't that shiny when it was new.
Thanks
Rich

Threaded piston and barrel? They work great. :-)
I use one like that once a year but not that big! Wow. Probably 1/3 cup or a bit better.
Du slaps his hand: I like to give the handle a slow half turn or so if there's a good lookin' woman over on that end of the engine. ;-)
Walk between the frame and the flywheel and give the eccentric strap some more grease. :-)

Why not put it on the running board and run lines to all your grease points? Bud.
