    I was helping tear down an old shed and came across one of these Marvel Mystery Oil "inverse oilers". It was still in the box with the original instructions and everything. Mine is like the one on the right side of the picture. I was wondering if anyone had ever used one of these? From what I understand it works just like an oiler on a compressed air line, but in this case it is oiling your engine's top end via the carb. I thought it would be a neat nostalgic piece on the right car. Any input?

    Oiling the top end via the carb? You mean its just a can that holds oil or MMO for the engine to suck in? Doesn't sound like it would help all that much with the advancments of modern oils. Would be neat to have though.

    MY father had a Marvel Mystery Oil inverse oiler installed on his 55 Ford Fairlane. It had a plate that was installed between the carburetor and the intake manifold and the tank was mounted on the fender. It was set to burn one pint of Mystery oil every 1000 miles. I don't remember how many miles were on the Ford when but it still ran great and hardly used any oil.
