If IRC, on my 1941 187, that long oil tube on the reversing lever is threaded. If you have the threaded portion stuck inside the hole, why not gently collaspe it with a punch and then take an unobsquered view? It sure won't hurt anything. Just my thing and a sure way not to damage any threads that may be in there by trying to reverse it out. Good luck! Roger

I just looked a little closer and I see that the outboard end of the tube is counterbored. Tube OAL is 2-1/8". I think the non-threaded end was counterbored to accept a plain old press-in GITS oiler.

Since the cap is missing from the one on the reverse tumbler on my 14.5", I figured now would be a good time to check that out. I think the 10L is the same. Mine is a heavy wall 5/16" OD tube with 1/16"-27 NPT on the end and it has two wrench flats.

Looks to me like they're pressed or maybe soldered in. Mine is mashed so I'm not really sure. So I went and looked, and took a photo. There are actually two of them on my apron. One on the left side is pressed it. I was able to pull it out, and put it back in. One on the right is the one that's mashed, and it's also pressed in, and perhaps soldered to a tube that reaches to the other side of the apron. Looks like it should drip on the shaft or gears there. Mine is a Model 8187-RN, with a 100 in the box for the apron. Don't know if that info will help, and it's old enough it may not even be the original apron.
