You can see the oil feed attached at both ends clearly in this

As I understand it, both ends were existing holes plugged with a bolt
with washer, so it's really easy to attach.<br><br>
You don't want TOO much oil to the top end, or it fills up the valve
cover, as I understand it.&nbsp; Wear on the #1 rocker would be a classic
sign of not enough oil to the rockers.<br><br>

one of you email me a picture of where you attached a supplemental oil

pathetic oil passage that the head/rocker pedestal interface has.&nbsp;
Has anyone tried tapping the end cap of the rocker shaft and connecting
an oil line directly?<br>
