Mechanical Lubricators

The hydrostatic lubricator on my ROMULUS has let me down again so it seems time to fit a mechanical one. (Also to my HUNSLET, now on the stocks). I bought 2 sets of friction clutches from Reeves many years ago but I'm wondering whether they are still in vogue, or does the shaft wear out too rapidly?
Also [1] Is there a good design for a mech. lubricator around?
[2] Should a query like this have better gone into the "Engines" folder?

Displacement lubricators are the answer, I've scrapped all the mechanical.
