Now the rods.

First I drill out the oil hole larger, I use a 9/32.
Then I put a large chamfer on it, creating a funnel of sorts to catch more oil.



Then I drill a 3/16" hole in the center of the cap, no chamfer here.
The hole pictured is way too big....I dunno what I was thinking when I drilled it!



You can see where the grinding on the crank helps now,  leaving a "shelf" to catch oil on top of the rod.

Disclaimer, I did not pay any attention to how I installed this rod, nor is it torqued down.It was done purely for photo use. It may or may not be installed correctly

Finally the pan.
There are 2 oil valleys that allo the oil to get down to the lower main.
using a die grinder and a 1/4 ball, I open those up just a bit.

I didn't WANT to show you this, lol...I just answer when asked, or chime in when I think I can help. Not starting a school, or hanging a shingle. I'm not good on video....
