Need an Oiler


Recommended Posts

What you are looking for is a Kinsey 4-Pump oiler. They were not the greatest oilers and do not work well if they are not primed. Here is an ad which shows the 6-pump oiler. The one for the Sears is a 4 pump and the pulley would be on the facing side in the picture, not the end as shown on the ad below.

Good Luck. May be a hard piece to find.

We have been running a Sears for over 40 years, and the oiler has never required ANY attention. I believe the brand is something other than Kinsey, but I can't remember what. I'll see if I can find out.

I know for a fact these were Kinsey Oilers. The Sears Parts Manual states this. Here is a link

Sears Motorbuggy Homepage - 1911 Parts Manual

See part number 21A3214.

There is also a picture on the page that follows.

Once the pump is primed, it seems to work fine, it is getting it primed once air had been introduced into the system. Or if some dirt gets under the check valve allowing air into the system. I speak from experience with more than one Sears on this. Be careful.
