Hello George . i have a photo of my engine with the tubes off and i remember cleaning the small hole out at the base of the tubes at the time thinking that is where the oil drains off but looking at the photo that would be covered by the rubber seal at the base. i remember oiling the followers and the oil stayed around where the ball sits. just wonder if it passes the followers somehow not important just got me thinking as i haven't delved that far with the engine, Baz
i just wondered how it passed into the timming chest but if you can see where it does George that solves that but what keeps the oil level in the timming chest to stop it from over filling . Baz
don't lose sleep over it George. just interested in how things function.
