|Comment||Thankyou Barrie, You're the first (on all the forums and sites I've been to) to acknowledge the proper role of the little rubber ring. I've already run the engine with the cover off and I could see there was a good oil supply coming up through the rocker shaft and out of the hole in the top of the rockers, but there is no direct feed to the end of the rocker. It takes a little while for oil to fill up the dish in the valve cap and for the tappet to become lubricated. At least I now know what needs to be done. Thanks again.|
