I am cleaning up the oil tubes on a C-19. I’ve taken the small felt pieces out of the ends of the tubes. They need to be replaced. Am curious what others have used as a replacement. The old felts fell apart...so reusing is not an option...nor should it be as they are very dirty and hard.
Thanks for the reply, I'll proceed doing same. No felt wick available in that small a diameter (that I could find). I would think these are commonly replaced during any restoration and/or motor overhaul. These felt wicks get very hard, and likely lose a significant amount of wicking ability. Regardless, they certainly will function better with new felt.
