I am trying to source an inexpensive pre oilier for my old Ford Excort Twin Cam Seems like if primed, the diesel may work. But maybe not. Comments please ladies/gents etc

I think it'll depend on the specific pump. I tried using a take-off Carter diesel fuel pump from a 2000 Dodge/Cummins to pump transmission fluid, and it didn't work worth a darn. The tranny fluid was just too thick for the pump.

Just found https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/22726/Re:_Pre_Oilers This is what I was thinking https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=-o-jOtKeBzU My preferacne would be a simple primer bulb with a one way check valve. As all I am trying to do is push oil around the engine before starting, for when the car has been sitting more than a week or so. I want to stay away from heavy and expensive solutions. But maybe that's best. Kind Regards Jim
