When I discovered the external oil port on the left rear of the TR/GT-6
heads that feed into the rocker assembly, I gathered about $2.00 worth of
pieces from the hardware store and connected that opening to the oil
galley with 1/4" copper tube. It provided the rear half of the rocker
shaft with more oil than it needed, the front half with less than I
wanted to see, but more than it had been getting. I considered trying to
feed both ends of the shaft to balance that, but never got that far.

I have very good evidence that my head is lacking sufficient oil supply. 
The shaft on #1 rocker has gouges about 1/16 deep after 35,000 miles. 
Can one of you email me a picture of where you attached a supplemental
oil feed line to your head?  Has anyone ever tried opening up that
pathetic oil passage that the head/rocker pedestal interface has.  Has
anyone tried tapping the end cap of the rocker shaft and connecting an
oil line directly?
 
Thanks,
 
Greg
