    Stumbling around the woods in northern Ohio and found this way cool Graco Motor Vitalizer machine. I believe this machine was used to flush engine oil from auto engines and treat the lubrication system. This is the first time I had ever seen one of these machines. Has anyone ever seen one of these or have any info on this?

      Looks like it hit the market in the 1938-1939 era. Here is what it looked like new.

      hey that's a humdinger...love field rust.. Merit gas used to have one drive right up and they would put one hose in your dipstick holder and pump it back through the oil breather I guess it was nothing more the a pump and a big filter ...they had the jars of old there for 15 cents.., most of our Junkers either burned oil or leaked it ...lol

      Thanks for the loves! Seller is unable to commit to a price, so it still sits in the field, I can wait.
