Engine pre oiler

Took my son in law to pick up his new (re-manufactured) engine today and they were trying to rent him an engine pre-oiler. Ever hear of one? It was like a 30lb freon tank with a lid that unscrewed in the center where you would pour the oil, had hoses that connected to the block and a compressed air inlet. I told them that I would use a speed handle and a socket instead. They said huh, never heard of that.

Re: Engine pre oiler

We always modified a rod to look like the end of the distributor and used a drill.

Just a waste of time and money if you ask me.

That's what we did. Took an old distributor and ground off the cam gear teeth and made a adapter for the top for a drill, sat her down in there and spun away.

Re: Engine pre oiler

Never heard of it. Always done the same as mentioned methods on cars with distributor or just disable fuel,ignition and crank a bit.
