Combination splash force-feed system

A combination splash force-feed system, also referred to as combination type, is a type of lubrication method which combines a force-feed system with a splash lubricating system to perform lubrication.
This type, normally used in engines such as water-cooled horizontal diesel engines, force feeds oil to provide lubrication to parts such as crankshaft journals, crank pins, and rocker arms, while instead using a splash mechanism at areas such as the crankshaft to provide lubrication to parts such as pistons, camshaft journals, cams, and bushings at the small ends of connecting rods.
