LenNH said: (quoted from post at 14:59:57 11/02/12) It seems like it would not be too hard to rig up continuous lubrication of the valve train--on 10-20, F-20 and others with that type engine--by hooking into the supply line to the filter. Anybody ever seen such a thing?
I have always been suprirsed that IHC could go until 1939 with an oiling system up on top that was about as primitive as you could get.

You would have to make internal modifications to the block. The way the engines are built all of the oil and condensation from the head runs into the cavity in the side of the block where the push rod tubes are located. There is a tin deflector that covers a tube coming up from the lower end of the block. The stuff that accumulates in this cavity is then supposedly vaporized and vented out the pipe at the right rear of the block.
There were valve oiling systems made with a valve in them, copper lines running up to the valve cover to where the oilers were. After starting the engine you could open the valve for a short time and oil the top end but if you didn't shut it off you would eventually run all your oil out on the ground.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

pretty much sums it up. if you constanly lube the valvetrain with oil from the crankcase your gonna run out and you can guess what will happen.
i plow alot with one of my W-30's and i dont find it difficult to manually oil the vavle tray once a day with a squirt can :wink:
