Hi all,

A&WP 290 has the above reference lubricator for steam valve and cylinder lubrication. I am looking for manuals on the lubricator. Due to good intentions and not following up, I believe some parts are missing on the oil seals of the ratcheting shaft. I have digital Nathan manuals, but they are unlike the EDNA, as far as I can figure. Any help with copies or digital scans would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Dale

I know you are looking for a detailed manual, hopefully someone will step forward with one. I love dong internet searches for this sort of stuff, but the best I could find is this listing of an Edna publication from 1945, available at certain libraries:
https://www.worldcat.org/title/quality- ... /300300074

I did find out that Edna Brass Mfg. Co. is a Superfund site in Cincinnati now occupied by a casino. I also found that the Carson & Colorado did a total rebuild on their Edna lubricator on #18 twenty years ago: https://carsoncolorado.com/history-of-1 ... ssessment/

"Hydrostatic Lubricator (for piston and compressor lubrication): Edna #9 three-feed. The lubricator was completely gone through in 1999 and had some sight glasses and all gaskets replaced. While untested, it should be in ready-to-use condition and not need additional work."

Not much to go on, hopefully someone will step forward with more practical information.

Railway Locomotive Maintenance By F. E. Kardes Published by American Technical Society Part 4 has information on Edna mechanical lubricator Model A 624 which may have what you need . TRAIN might have reprinted it back in the 1980s.
Hope this helps

Did you get the information I sent to your personal e-mail on June 8th? If my e-mails are not reaching outside my out box, I need to find out why.
