  • Hydrovac "neetsfoot oil,,,,piston oil?

    In the manuel it says to soak the piston wick and another seal with "piston oil" in an earlier forum question the "neetsfoot oil" is mentioned... are these the same....
    Do you know what the "piston oil" in the manuel is made from....Not to many people today no what i am talking about. Is it a vegetable oil type product...
    thanks,,, don.

      Well I'll be blessed! And I thought all the uses of neetsfoot oil were known to me. Hah! Learn something every day...

      You also might check at the local feed-n-seed as well as any (horse) tack stores in the area. Might be a little less expensive.

        It's a leather piston seal, only makes sense.
