Valve rocker lubrication.

I agree that the lubrication is adequate PROVIDING the oilers are filled

every time the car is taken out. I only mentioned running extra

lubrication in the case of having to machine new pins and fitting bronze

bushes. A pipe along with a very small hole at each rocker with

suffice, but on pre-29 models there is a problem with draining excess

oil back to the crankcase, and extra holes would have to be drilled into

the push rod guides to allow this. '29 blocks had holes through the

block front and back to allow oil mist (theoretically) to go up into the

rocker chamber and help lubricate things. John, I'll have a couple of

oil pump springs as well thanks, if you are getting them made.
