I also have been straining my mind on how this oiler works on the Beatty. For anyone not familiar with the Beatty this is what lubricates the top end of the mill opposed to the typical ring that is used on Aermotor etc.
My confusion is how does the oil get from the spring to the channels beside it and into the oiler holes? I have had a steady stream of oil running up and over the pulley on top and back down the other side when spinning by hand in the garage but have not figured out how it is supposed to get off the pulley. Should there be a little piece of leather up there to wick the oil off and into the oiler channels? I assume there was something that was taken off as when i got the mill open for the first time the oiler spring was not in the bottom of the case and had been removed. I have attached 3 pics. 1 of the spring setup. 1 of the pulley and spring that the oil seems to stay in and also 1 of the oil channels it should flow into i assume. Reaching out to the Beatty Guys here. Thanks guys!

Josh, I don't think anything is missing. That early style Beatty with the spring wasn't made for very long, it probably didn't do the job too well so they switched to the more common style with the oil reservoirs.
