Pre-Oiler and Back-Up Engine Oil Pump

Pre-Oiler and Back-Up Engine Oil Pump

All-in-one geared electric Pre-Oiler AND Back-Up Engine Oil Pump ( a logical MUST HAVE for *ALL* kinds and types of engines, not just for aircraft and jet engines ).  Besides aircraft, used in boats, sail boats, speed boats, race cars, pick-ups, cars, semi trucks, Tractor Pull vehicles, military vehicles, and much more!

The average pilot, including airline pilots, fly on average only 40 hours per year !  Lycoming has an AD that says your engine begins to rust on the inside after only 2 days !!  The closer you can get your engine to a 2000+ hour TBO, the lower your cost per flight hour will be.  The ONLY way you will achieve this, like Jay Leno says, is to Pre-Oil your engine before Engine Start !!!  This goes for ANY engine — engines in boats, sail boats, speed boats, race cars, pick-ups, cars, semi trucks, Tractor Pull vehicles, military aircraft and vehicles, and much more !!!  Also, you should run your Pre-Oiler at least weekly (probably  more — use a timer like used for batteries) even if you don’t start your engine to keep things lubed all over.  Also, you should have spray nozzles for your cam &/or a hollow cam for your Lycoming.  Also, an old, very experienced, IA told me once that you should keep your engine warmed up to 60+ degrees all the time year round.  More info: once the pump is primed for 1st use, you do not need to prime it again because it self primes even when sitting for 5+ years.  No trouble drawing as much as 5′ vertical from source, and has been used around hot engines for 20+ years without a failure — the o-rings are made of Viton and are good to 400 degrees F.

    DELIVERY ( we ship anywhere in the world ) :  Simple — as soon as I receive your order with all your parts that you want, and your address and phone number, I will e-mail you your total.  When I receive your check, I will send you your pump and parts via Priority Mail with a tracking number.  Foreign orders can use a credit card.

For certified aircraft, you simply get a FAA Field Approval / 337 .  The FAA says because the pump is an external installation, it is a minor modification.  Our pumps are used in many military vehicles, too.

Product Description

Click here for Installation Schematic How this Pre-Oiler & Back-Up Oil Pump works — when you turn your Master Switch ON, the Electric Oil Pump turns ON, sucks oil out of your oil pan, and pressurizes your Engine Oil Pressure to about 20 to 60+ PSI (depending on pump version) *before* engine start, Pre-Oiling the entire engine — remember, 87+% of engine wear for ANY engine is from just simply starting the engine because of bare metal to metal contact.  After you see about 15+ PSI on your Oil Pressure Gage ( which only takes about 18 to 30 secs — I would let it run about 1 minute ), THEN start your engine.  When the Engine Driven Mechanical Oil Pump catches up ( when it reaches above ~55 PSI ), the Electric Pre-Oiler Pump automatically shuts OFF via the Oil Pressure Switch ( see schematic ).  And if the Engine Driven Mechanical Oil Pump were to ever fail ( which does happen all too often ), the Electric Pre-Oiler Pump automatically comes ON as an Electric Back-Up Oil Pump because of this Oil Pressure Switch.  You can also use the Oil Pump to keep your engine lubed during construction, when down for maintenance, or during long down times of not flying.  You could even have an external power supply and a timer turn it ON to keep your engine lubed during a vacation trip or during maintenance periods just like you do for the battery.

You are already flying with 2 spark plugs, 2 ignition systems and 2 fuel pumps, sooo why are you flying with just 1 oil pump?!?  Why seize your $40,000+ engine and / or crash your Pride and Joy *just* because your Engine Driven Mechanical Oil Pump fails?!?!? And just because it’s never happened to you before doesn’t mean it won’t!  Besides, it saves on engine wear every time you start the engine — ANY engine.  Also, you can keep your engine Pre-Oiled during construction, during non-flying/maintenance times, and when you go on vacation via a timer!

Wondering which Pre-Oiler / Back-Up Oil Pump to choose ( pump details subject to change without notice ) ?

The average distance between airports in the USA is only 15 sm, except in the mountains.  The 3 lb. GP-301 Intermittent Duty model could probably be considered Continuous Duty for aircraft because it should work just fine running for several hours straight as a Back-Up Oil Pump.  And it will eventually pump very cold oil at start-up in very cold climates, too.
BUT, if you are operating over mountains a lot, and / or operating in extremely cold weather a lot, and / or flying over water a LOT, and / or flying over wooded areas a LOT, I *STRONGLY* recommend the GP-302 or GP303 model [ they are just 3 lbs. or 6 lbs. more than the GP301 — take the few extra lbs. of weight off of yourself 🙂 ] :
