Engine Lubrication


InstaLube is a spring loaded, piston accumulator which automatically pumps oil into the engine's main oil system the instant the starter is engaged.

Engines suffer severe damage when cranked in dry conditions, in particular at low temperatures, when the oil is thick and slow to circulate. InstaLube TEP 4000 was designed to protect diesel and gasoline engines from this problem.

On starting, InstaLube immediately injects oil directly into the engine's main oil system until there is a build up of oil pressure from the engine oil pump. This operation is fully automatic. Lubricating the major engine parts before the engine is started reduces engine wear and increases reliability.

The design and operation of the InstaLube is simplicity itself with a robust construction to ensure a maintenance free life while protecting the engine.  InstaLube has an oil capacity suitable for engines up to approximately 800-900 cu.in., For larger engines install two units.

The locking pin is released by the solenoid the instant the starter is energized; oil is pumped into the engine until the engine oil pump pressure reaches 20 psi (1.4 bar), at which point the InstaLube is recharged.


The piston is held by the locking pin with the accumulator loaded with oil.
