There are two that I know of.
One is the Oilamatic (www.oilamatic.com/).
The other is made by Infinity Aerospace (infinityaerospace.com/product/other/pre-...-up-engine-oil-pump/)
I have not installed either, but they seem to be a good idea.
For instance I have seen radial engines damaged almost immediately if, after a period of inactivity, they weren't pre oiled prior to starting.
The Infinity Aerospace unit is a lot less expensive than the OIlamatic unit but its website shows no mention of a FAA approval for installation. The Oilamatic site shows FAA PMA/STC approval.
Some might argue that FAA approval is not needed since the unit does not operate during the flight window but the decision on whether the installation is a major modification, and needs FAA approval is made by the installing mechanic.
My opinion is that the Oilamatic unit is the best way to go since it has FAA approval for installation.
Perhaps a reader or two can weigh in on their experience.

I am wondering if there is a pre-oiler which is compatible to 2005 T182T with Garmin’s G1000
