Default Leader Oiler Parts

Can you buy replacement needle valve stems for a Leader oiler (see pics). I fired up the engine and opened the oiler and the handle came off in my hand. Thanks in advance.

There aren't too many new parts available for oilers. Mostly glass ,gaskets, and fill plugs. The best way is to go to a show and usually someone has parts oilers etc. for sale. You may have to buy more than the needle to fix what you have. rob

You could silver solder the end up and make a new pin for the lever.

Thanks for the ideas. Coolsprings is coming up on June 14, 15, 16. I missed it last year, I was thinking it was this one weekend and it was the one before. I'll check there this year since it will be in a month. Thanks again.

There are a few guys that bring oiler parts to CS. Bring along yours to fit parts. Sometimes the needle from a larger oiler can be cut down at the point to be made to work. Rob

If I would try the silver solder that Bill suggested first what could I use to make a new pin that would work? My brother does AC work and uses silver solder.
