Forum Title: Repair antique yale door closer
Greetings, I have an antique (don't know exact age) Yale/Eaton 149A door closer. It still functions, however it is leaking oil from the end-cap (not the end with the adjusting screw). I would like to take this off and seal the threads but not sure about how much and how to replace the oil. Also, what is the function of the castle-type nut on the top of the closer? If I remove it totally from the door I might as well seal both threads. Is there anything else I need to know to refurbish this closer? I will try to attach a couple pictures...https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/phot...eat=directlinkhttps://picasaweb.google.com/lh/phot...eat=directlink Thanks for the help.

Air flow - you want air to move in and out of the room. Example: you have the bathroom fan running with the door closed - you need the gap at the bottom to allow the make up air into the room.

I don't have an answer for you, sorry, but I just had to say, that's an awesome closer!! Is this in a house, business? DoorDoctor, should Eabis do any kind of flushing out of the old oil before putting new oil in? Cleaning in a parts washer, or anything like that? I restore old electric desk fans, and after 30, 80, or 100 years, grease and oil solidifies and clogs up the works.
