LM500 / LM500-TF Oil Level Regulators

The LM500 maintains oil level on any size engine.

As crankcase oil level drops, the LM500 float also drops and opens the Thumb-Valve. This allows oil to flow from the supply tank through the LM500 and into the crankcase. 

When proper level is achieved in the crankcase, the LM500 float rises causing the Thumb-Valve to close off further oil flow. 

If the clean oil supply is depleted and oil level continues to fall, the low-level switch will operate an alarm or equipment shutdown.

Not intended for use with fuel !!!
