This invention relates to a combination flushing device and lubricant dispenser which is particularly adapted for use in cleaning and flushing the transmissions and differentials of automotive vehicles.

The main object of the invention is to pro-- vide a combined flushing and dispensing unit by means of which the transmission or differential of an automobile may be cleaned is and flushed and which may be operated to deliver clean lubricant into the mechanism after the cleaning and flushing operation has been completed.

A further object of the invention is to pro- 25 vide a flushing and dispensing unit of the character described which is simple and compact in construction. efficient and dependable in operation and which is well adapted for quantity production at comparatively low cost.

A further object of the invention is to provide a flushing and dispensing unit of the character described in which a flushing oil, such as kerosene may be delivered to the transmission or differential of an automobile for the purpose of loosening and removing used lubricant which might adhere to the gears or housing and which is provided with a suction line for withdrawing the used dirty lubricant from the differential or transmission, the device being provided also with means for filtering and separating the solid particles from the diluted lubricant removed from the differential or crank case; and which is also provided with a lubricant dispenser for dispensing clean lubricant in predetermined quantities, the whole device being operated from a single power unit.

' Further and more limited objects of the invention will appear as the description proceeds and by reference'to the accompanying drawings in which Fig. 1 is a view in side elevation of an apparatus constructed in ac-, cordance with the preferred embodiment of my invention; Fig. 2 is a top plan view of the apparatus shown in Fig. 1 ;.Fig. 3 is a viewpartly'in side elevation and partly in vertical sectionso as to more clearly illustrate the interior mechanism; Fig. 4 is a fragmentary view partly in side elevation and partly in vertical section and illustrating the details of the lubricant dispenser; Fig. 5 is a view in front elevation with parts broken away so as to more clearly illustrate the mechanism for indicating to the purchaser the amount of lubricant delivered; Fig. 6 is a, detail view of the measuring rod which cooperates with the lubricant container to out off the delivery of lubricant after a predetermined amount has been dispensed Fig. 7 is a vertical sectional view of the injector forming part of my apparatus and Figs. 8 and 9 are detail views of the cut-out switch for cutting off the flow of, current to the motor when a predetermined amount of lubricant has been dispensed.

Referring now to the drawings, the reference character 1 designates a tank, which may be a standard sized drum and which is preferably mounted on a three-wheeled truck 2 by means of which the-apparatus may be transported from place to place. The tank or drum 1 is preferably annular in shape and secured over the tank 1 in any suitable manner is a cover 3 of the shape shown most clearly in Fig. 1 and which has a projecting portion 4. The cover 3 just fits the upper end of the container 1 and the projecting portion 4 extends beyond one sidethereofas shown. Carried by the projecting portion 4 of the cover is a container 5 having an outlet 6 controlled by a suitable valve 7 Also carried by the cover 3 and disposed within the container 1 is a cylinder 8 which is threadedly secured to an annular depending skirt 9 on the cover. Mounted on the top of the cover 3 is a rotary pump-10 having a shaft 11 which is disposed in alignment and nonrotatably connected to a shaft 12 of an electric motor 13 also carried by the cover. The pump 10'has an intake pipe 14 which extends through an opening 15 inthe cover 3 and into the tank 1 and has its lower and disposed adjacent the bottom thereof. Carried by the cover 3 is an injector 16 from which leads a discharge pipe 17 the lower end of which is disposed within the interior of the tank 1. Connected with the opposite side of the in jector is a connection 17 from which leads apipe 18 which connects with the discharge side of the pump. Also carried by the cover 3 is a lubricant reservoir 19in which is ar-;

ranged a piston 20 having a piston rod 21 3 and connected with a piston rod 21. Leading from the connection 17' is a pipe 26 which leads through a suitable stufling box 27 in the cover 3 and communicates with the interior of the cylinder 8 above the piston 23. Aldo leading from the injector 16 is a pipe 28 which connects with the upper end of the container 5 and arranged within this pipe is a check valve 29 which opens in the direction of the arrow in Figs. 1 and 2.

Also leading from the connection 17 a is 'a flexible discharge pipe 30 having a nozzle 31 and controlled by a suitable valve 32. Leading from the container 5 is a flexible conduit 33 having an armored nozzle 34 and controlled by a suitable valve 35. The tank 1 is normally about three-quarters filled with a flushing oil, such as kerosene. When the motor is started, the pumpis driven and takes in liquid through the intake pipe 14 and discharges the same through the discharge pipe 18, the connection 17, injector 16 and discharge pipe 17 back into the tank 1. The injector 16 is shown in detail in Fig. 7 and comprises the discharge nozzle 16 and a restricted passageway 16". The liquid flowing through the injector causes a suction through 1 the pipe 28 which communicates with the upper end of the container. 5 thereby causing considerable vacuum therein. When it is desired to flush and clean out a transmission or differential, the suction nozzle 34 is inserted into the (inferential ontransmisison and the vacuum within the container 5 causes the lubricant to be withdrawn through the nozzle 34 and pipe 33 when the valve 35 is open. Unless the lubricant within thetransmission and differential is very thick the suction through nozzle 34 and pipe 33 will be sufficient tov withdraw the lubricant and deliver the same into the container 5. For the purpose of further diluting lubricant in the,

transmission or differential and for flushing and cleaning the gears and housing, the nozzle 31is inserted into the gear housing and as this connection leads from the piiessure side of the pump, the flushing oil. will be discharged through the nozzle 31 with con siderable force when the valve is opened.

This nozzle may be used to dislodgethe heavier particles of lubricant from the gears ahd housing and serves to dilute the lubricant within the gear housing sufficiently so that it may be withdrawn through the nozzle 34. The injector 16 being vertically disposed and discharging in the direction of gravity tends to create a considerable vacuumv within the container 5 and pipe 28. In fact with my apparatus I am able to obtain a vacuum in container 5 of from 24 to 28 inches. 1

Leading from the'bottom of the lubricant reservoir 19 is a discharge p'pe 36 having a valve 37 therein and from which leads a flex- .ible conduit 38. The reservoir 19 may be filled with lubricant by. means of a pump or gun'by disconnectin the flexible connection 38 and connecting t e pump or gun thereto and forcing the lubricant into the reservoir below the piston 20. As the pipe 26 leading inder 8, it will be seen thatas long as the motor is runnin @pressure will be exerted upon the upper si e of the .piston 23 and likewise upon piston 20 in the container 19 which is rigidly connected with the piston 23 through the piston rods. 21 and 24. After the transmission or differential has been thoroughly flushed and cleaned, the flexible conduit 38 may be connected with the interior of the transmission" .or diflerential housing and the valve 37 opened, whereupon the pressure of fluid on the piston-23 will force the lubricant from the container 19 through the outlet pipe 36 and conduit 38.

' from the connection 17 is connected with the upper side of the piston 23 in the working cyl- In order to determine the ,amount of lubri- I cant dispensed and to give visual indication thereof to a-customer, the reservoir 19 is provided on one side with a suitable scale 39 and connected withtj e piston23 is a rod 40 which leads through a,suitable stufiing box in the cover 3 and has} pointer 41 connected with the upper end thereof and'disposed over and adjacent the scale 39, as shown most clearly in Fig. 5. Also carried by the cover 3 and frictionally and slidably held therein is a rod 42 having a pointer 43 which is set opposite to the pointer 41 before the dispensing operation is started. As the lubricant is dispensed from the reservoir 19 the piston 23 will be moved downwardly and with it the piston 20 and also the rod 40. After the dispensing operation has been completed the distance between the pointers 41 and 43 will indicate to the customer the amount of grease dispensed. After the dispensing operation has,been completed the pointer 43 will be moved again to a point opposite the pointer 41 and be ready for the next dispensing operation. The scale 31 may be calibrated in any suitable units, such as pounds.

For the purpose of cutting ofl the flow of lubricant from the reservoir 19 after a predetermined amount has been dispensed, I provide a suitable-cut-out switch 44 which is preferably mounted on the top of thereservoirl9. Carried by the piston 20 and extending through a suitable stufling boxin the top of the co-ntainer'19'is a rod 45. shown in detail in Fig. 6. and having a suitable scale thereon. The cut-out switch44 is connected in series with the circuit to the motor and has a lever 46 which projects in close proximity aeaaiva to the rod 45. Carried by the rod and adjustably mounted thereon is a member 47 having a spring latch 48 thereon which is adapted for engagement in the notches 49 in the rod 45.

The switch lever 46 is so disposed with respect to the member 49. that it will be engaged thereby upon movement of the shaft 45 downwardly. The cut out'switch 44 is shown in detail in Figs. 8 and 9 and the arrangement is such that the switch lever 46 is normally urged to a position closing the circuit by means of a coil spring 50. Should the customer require, for example, five pounds of lubricant, the member 47 will be slid upwardly on the rod 45 a distance corresponding to five pounds of lubricant and as the lubricant is dispensed the rod 45 will be moved downwardly with the piston and with it the member 47 which is held in engagement therewith by means, of the latch 48. When the piston has moved downwardly a sutficient distance to dispense five pounds of lubricant, the-member 47 will engage the switch arm 46 and move the same downwardly as shown in Fig. 5 thereby breaking the circuit to the motor and discontinuing the dispensing operation of the device.

It will therefore be seen that I have provided mechanism in which the attendant as well as the customer will be assured that a certain predetermined amount of lubricant has been delivered.

When all of the lubricant has been dispensed from the container 19, and it is desired to refill the same, the flexible connection 38 isremove'd and a grease gun or pump applied to the discharge pipe and fresh lubricant forced into the container. As that portion of the cylinder 8 above the piston 23 is filled with the flushing oil, it will be seen that the oil in this space will escape through the pipe 26 connection 17 through the injector 16, back to the interior or" the tank 1. It ,will now be/Tclear that I have provided a combined flushing and dispensing unit in which the dispensing mechanism is carried by the flusher and operated from the same source of power as the flasher. Various changes may be made in the details of construction and arrangement of the various parts without departing from the spirit of my invention. It is therefore to be understood that my invention is to be limited only in accordance with the scope of the appended claims.
