Opposed Twin Oil Mods
« on: January 11, 2011, 05:27:23 AM »
Have had several guys ask about this lately, so I decided to post some pics of how I modify Opposed twins for better oiling.






The first thing I do is the crank. I remove material above the crank pins. Later you will see, with the rod on there it creates a sort of "shelf" . The slung oil comes down and gets into the rod here.

the bottom of the crank pin radiuses u to the side, I grind it down to that radius.
I cut it first with the lathe, since it was already in the lathe anyway....

I SEE AN TABLE. NO V BLOCKS. :bash: :D
They are under the rags

OK, fine...that's what was under the rags.
So there you go.
Now if you do this to your crank without what I do to it afterwards.....good luck keeping that engine together!
Don't bother asking what I do afterwards, i ain't telling!
