Default Needle Tip Oil Bottles that Seem to Work Well on the Distributor

In case anyone is interested, these needle tip oil bottles from Amazon.com seem to work well for oiling the hole in the distributor cam screw (if your car is so equipped) and the slide oiler at the base of the distributor. This is the first thing I've found that doesn't leave a mess.

Interesting!. These also may be good for flowing black semi gloss enamel into the '31 instrument panel recesses with of course the panel on a flat surface.

Maybe so. They seemed to put oil where I wanted it, in a controlled fashion, without making a mess.

An eye dropper works as well!

I use my dipstick. Pull it out and it has a couple drops of oil on it.
