Hello all. I am new to this forum. actually new to any forum. hopefully I can figure out ways to navigate. I have a 2HP root and Vandervoort triumph horizontal hit and miss. I was wondering how fast to set the cylinder oiler drip rate? The engine will not be working hard, Mostly low RPM (loafing) at shows. I don't want to have too little lubrication obviously, but I also don't want an oily mess if not necessary.

It will be interesting if there are some other replies/ideas here.

4 - 6 drops a minute seems to be a common suggestion for larger engines doing work.

For you little engine just putzing along I'm thinking one or two drops a minute should be enough.

I use 30 wt and 15-40 in my drip oilers.
Does not seem to matter.
Just get the drip numbers where you want them.
