DescriptionThe part was used to help lubricate small engines.  This part fit over a shaft and turned within the engine, and was immersed in the lubricating oil. It sprayed oil up onto the moving engine parts when it was turned by the gear section. Probably one of the first high production nylon injection molded parts.  This was the first time a plastic part replaced a number of metal parts with one molded part. The part had been made from a cast aluminum gear and stamped metal. Both parts had to be machined and then joined together to form the operating part. Production was streamlined using this nylon part and there were no rejects, whereas the metal parts had a tendency to come apart.
