Firecat started following 1923 Stutz 4 cyl - valve train lubrication question
Firecat posted a topic in StutzCan someone tell me how the valve train, pushrods, rockers and valve stems receive lubrication on a 1923 Stutz Model K fire truck? The engine oil pressure seems good measuring 55 lbs. The overhead valve cover does not appear to use a gasket suggesting that there is not a lot of oil present. The engine is in good condition and I have not taken it apart so I have not been able to visualize any oil passages etc. Since I don't see a source of oil with the engine is running and the cover off, I'm concerned that the valve train is not being adequately lubricated. I've attached a photo of the valve train. Thank you for listening.
