I am putting back the name "engine saver" in the title, since they have failed to reply to any of my emails that I send to them.
This page was once titled with the words "Engine" and "saver" with a space between them under the words Engine Pre-luber, but due to some jack ass lawyer "Joel S Goldhammer" firstname.lastname@example.org and his client "Flight Systems", I had to change it because it was "trade marked". So I guess this means if I trade mark the words "jack ass" I can go a round and waste money telling every one that the name "jack ass" is a trade mark and they cannot use the name or post it. I bet this jack ass wishes he had a Hummer too and I guess if he keeps this up he will be able to collect from his client to have one too (what a lawyer will do for a buck), anyway, take the "jack ass" out below and you have once known title to this page.
What's the difference between a Lawyer and a catfish? One is a scum sucking, bottom dredging parasite, The other is a fish.
What's the difference between a dead skunk and a dead lawyer on the road? The skid tracks before the dead skunk.
Why should lawyers be buried at sea? Because deep down, there're not that bad.
Here is the letter that they sent to me (it's a TIF file and will view great if your using IE4.0 or better.
Once it was installed I found out that after a short time after turning the engine off, the oil would drain out of the pump and the lines, so the next time you start, the pump must prime itself once again, sometimes taking over a minute. To fix this problem, would be best if installed at the level of the oil tank. If you want to get a pre-luber I would suggest getting it from Stinger Accessories, because they have a bracket the mounts the pump down next to the oil pan, and offer a higher quality hose line (Stainless steel jacketed line).
(Dec, 16th 1998 Update) Well after installing a check valve, and still having problem getting it to prime, I ended up moving it down next to the oil pan. Stinger Accessories sent me a plate that they use to mount the pre-luber pump down next to the oil pan. I had to drill a few more holes into the plate to make it fit right, I have a feeling that the plate they sent me would have fitted the 94 and new Hummers better. But once it was mounted and powered up, it ran a lot better, started pumping the oil right-a-way, and was not as noisy in the cab.. I also added a 3 way valve that will let me dump the oil, instead of using the quick disconnects (in fact, while I was moving the pump, I found that I could not re-connected the "quick dis-connects" good thing I was not in the middle of changing my oil). (photos, soon)
Many other companies out there make pre-lubrications for you engines and are a real engine saver if you don't run the engine like once a week. Boats and big engines are common places to find engine lubrications pumps that are used before starting the engine. Check out one or two of the links and you will find more about them and what they claim.
|The black pump just to the left is the engine pre-luber.
The pump start to work right as to turn the key to start the engine, in
about 10 seconds the engine has full oil pressure. This oils down all the
required engine parts. And once the engine is turned off, the pumps starts
again to help cool of the engine bearings and will run for about 1 minute.
Noisy in the cab while it is running when mounted here. But since I have mounted down by the oil pan, and on the frame, it's a lot quieter.
|The oil is picked up at the bottom of the oil pan using the oil drain plug.|
|This is the optional oil filter adapter that goes between the engine
and the oil filter. (Standard in the kit from Stinger)
From the pump it is fed to the oil filter and then to the rest of the engine, and back to the oil pan.
|If you do not use the oil filter adapter you can pump the oil into the engine at the same place the oil pressure sending sense the pressure. This is what I had to do until I got the filter adapter because the one I was shipped was of the wrong size. The oil going into the engine is filtered with in the oil pump/pre-luber but not to the same degree as the regular oil filter does.|
