You can see the oil feed attached at both ends clearly in this
<a href=""; eudora="autourl"></a><br><br>
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>

Has anyone tried tapping the end cap of the rocker shaft and connecting
an oil line directly?<br>
