This week’s Old Iron Question comes to us from John Petty, who would like to know the following:

“Could you tell me how many drops of oil from a drip oiler should drop on a piston per minute on a 2 HP hit-and-miss engine at idle?”

If you can help John, post your response in the comment section below.

Do you have a question about an antique tractor, engine or piece of farm equipment that you’d like to ask the old iron collecting community? If so, send your question and any related photos to Associate Editor Christian Williams and we’ll post your question in this blog.
