I rang them cuz I'd lost the little black tubes that drop the oil onto the chain. (As in tyre fitter at main dealer lost them.)
Scottoiler sent them FOC.
Good service IME.

BTW, you didn't have the dial set to 'Prime' did you?

As above give them a call.

I went to there palce not far from me with a problem with getting my scotoiler to work. Guys comes out looks at it and tells me its knackered but fitted a new one free of charge took him about 15 minutes to get a new kit and he then he fitted it for me first class service tried to give him a score for a pint for himself and he wouldnt hear of it.

usually a spot of grit holding the valve open. you can cive it a clean out with some light oil, parrafin or something just to clear it out, but theyre usually uber reliable, and if its still doing it, its worth giving them a bell cos their customer service is outstandingly good!

Cheers John will give it 'flush' thru and try it again.
I'll give them a call if that fails.

Default My experience with

Scottoiler customer services has been excellent.
For some reason I broke 1 arm off my duel oiler, but rather than have to buy a complete duel oiler kit, they sent me the part I needed F.O.C

Flushed with light oil refilled it and it is still leaking, judging by the oil on wheel a bit worse than it was. Will give customer service a ring and see what they say but, I rekon it will need a new one.
