Re: Pre-oilers

1. Yes, they do work.
2. They're pricey.
3. I can't afford 'em.
4. Have you thought about and oil accumulator?
5. Take a look at Accusump.
6. It's fairly priced, and works well.
7. How about a DIY Preluber?

Re: Pre-oilers

Here Leve what do you think about this design?


That could all be done for around a hundred dollars? Do you think its worth the cost?

Re: Pre-oilers

1. It should work...
2. It would be WELL worth the cost,
3. as it keeps down wear on start-up.

Re: Pre-oilers

My question for you. I could do away with the pressure/check so it doesnt automatically cut off and I could just install a switch so when I get to a desired Oil Pressure before starting the engine I could just cut it off. Another question on the 2.5L where the Oil Pressure Sending unit screwed into the block tell me if thats before or after the flow through the OIL FILTER? Since there would be no point in putting unfiltered oil all over the engine before startup correct? Do you know of any eletric pumps that would be good? Size of hydraulic hose?

Re: Pre-oilers

Something this might help this project:
Remote Oil Filter Kits

I'm going to be installing one of the dual kits on my CJ once I get the engine running again. It would seem to me that it would be very easy to just plumb the pump into the return line, then you have 2 quarts of oil to pump into your pre-oiler.

Re: Pre-oilers

The only thing I don't like about this idea is:

1.) If you use the drain plug as a pickup for that pump it is hanging awful low and could get broke off on the trail and you'd be with no oil fast, but you could pull off the pan and put in a pickup for the pump up high.

2.) I'd put a check vavle on both hoses to be safe.


Just my $.02 worth.

Re: Pre-oilers

See thats exactly what I was thinking. But trying to keep costs down it might work just going through there because on the 4.0 it goes straight through into the filter and then to the engine. But I always wanted to add a remote filter so maybe this could be some extra Protection?

Re: Pre-oilers

Yea? I could just tap the oil pan kinda low on the side? And run the Hydraulic Hose from there? What do you think? [img]images/graemlins/goodpost.gif[/img]

Re: Pre-oilers

Why not keep it real simple - a pushbutton on the instrument panel. Ignition on, push button, gauge comes up, start engine, release button.
