Engine Prelube Fittings

Posted on September 08, 2015 by Marco Romani

Many of you know that the old trick of spinning the distributor drive on older Chevy motors to drive the oil pump and pre-lube an engine is no longer possible on distributor-less engines. We noticed there were some pre-lube products recommended by GM but they were over $300! So we developed some fittings that work with our Power Fill tool (part numbers 1740 and 1745). The GM fittings are part numbers 1188, 1138 and 1144. They are 1/8", 3/8" and 1/4" NPT threads. And a bushing, pn 2277, converts our 1/8" NPT fitting to a M12x1.5m fitting for use on many european cars. Here are some pictures of the new pre-lube fittings.
