Hi slash1953

You will need to use steam oil for the mechanical lubricator, ordinary bearing oil doesn't do as good a job when mixed up with steam, steam oil is specifically designed for this job role.

Many thanks

Hi

I used Hallett, but Morrisons also do similar oils in the Bearing Oil 460 and Cylinder oil 680.

For cylinder oil I used Hallett Sco460 Compounding oil but they have a Non compounding equivalent.



HLT/STO022 Straight Cylinder Oil 460NC A lighter grade, non-compounded oil formulated for the lubrication of steam cylinders in applications where the practice is to recover steam condensate. Designed for lower steam pressures and saturated steam conditions.


For bearings I used Hallett LBO220 Straight Bearing Oil 220
Used by engines for providing lubrication to the motions,
bearings and used as a general purpose lubricant on total
loss systems or where compounding is not preferred.

If you dont want to mess about with 2 different oils try Morris Universal Steam oil, good for the lubricator and the bearings, only need to have the one can to worry about.
I've been using it for the past 5yrs on my 4" Agri and cant fault it, engine runs like a sewing machine on it Cool

I get mine from HSS https://www.heritagesteamsupplies.co.uk/golden-film-universal-steam-oil-5l.html but then they are just round the corner from me.
