View Full Version : Auto oilier help

01-08-2011, 09:44 PM
Ok got the new to me plastic injection machine in the garage. We moved it Egyptian style 2" pipe rollers and a bar. At 8000 pounds it was a pain in the A. So now time to start fixing the problem spots. First off is the auto oilier. There is a small hydraulic piston (black box) that moves with each clamp stroke. It is not hooked up and was wondering what it should look like. The manual oilier works. And the other part with the hose clamp spins around. So how dos this one work?

Do a search, and look up Bijur - They are still makeing them, and information and parts should be available - They are for the manual ones.

I'm not 100 % sure but the hydraulic piston could have been attached to the dangling lever so that it operates the pump on each stroke.

Does the mechanism on the input shaft of the oiler have a one way clutch or a ratchet in it ?

Although I have not rebuilt a Bijur oiler in several years, all of them I saw, the input shaft was either driven by gear, sprocket, or a one way clutch of some kind with a mechanism similar to the one you have. As the input shaft spins it cranks the piston of the oiler down (there is a worm gear in there) until it gets to the spot where the charge piston is released, which pumps the oil out.

I did find a line drawing of the oilier. And it showed some kind of coupling on the lever and piston. I'll stick a chain master link in there. When I move the lever it does fill like a ratchet of some kind. The ratchet doesn't fell real strong or good. Might be worn out.

I took one oiler similar apart,the knuckle had one of those roller cam clutches in it and the shaft had a needle bearing race pressed on.

Torrington bearings makes the clutches,new one cost me $15
