|Oil hose wraps around
the funky manifold. You just won't see one of these on
every showroom floor.
|New oil pump in
place. The oil pump had been tapped for the outside oil
lines, but now we had to find another place for access
to pressurized oil.
|And here it is - the
old oil screen bolt (the screen itself being rendered
useless by the use of solid lifters).

is in the frame, would I lie to you?
Oil me up, man. That was my next
concern. This is a top-oiling shovelhead bolted onto a 64
panhead bottom so we had to pay attention to how that black gold
was going to keep everything from degenerating into a smoldering
mass of locked up melted rubble.
I scored this strange dual oil cable and a new-style oil pump
before I took the motor to Scott. He decided that since the came
cover wasn't the right year (no oil bolt) that he would tap a
hole into the oil screen screw - and that's just what he did. It
makes a bunch of sense when you think about it, and worked swell
with my dual outside oiler hose.
It wraps nicely around the funky dual throat (kinda) manifold
