Yes, my oil pressure gauge screws directly in to the back side of governor housing. It baffles me that the governor and tappets have to depend on lubrication from such a small hole. All sounds great.......I'll give it a try. Thank you all very much!

It baffles me too, it's essential for that to remain open. After reading several accounts in here where after a 20 year time period, people have gone back inside their pristinely overhauled tractors to find two inches of crud laying in the bottom of the crankcase AGAIN, I'm thinking we all need to open these these things up every ten years or so to clean it out again AND knock that hole open just to be sure the top end gets the oil it needs. They report that they are using high grade Diesel motor oil and changing filters often too, so the crud build up shouldn't be happening, maybe it's just the nature of the beast to do this? At any rate, that's my plan even though I remain baffled. I also went to the ACE hardware store and bought an extra long 1/16" drill bit and opened that hole up a notch, now I can use the drill to open it back up with too.

But mine gets it's rocker arm oil from another source, you might wind up with a bit of oil smoke if you go heavy with oil on the valve stems. Mine only oils the exhaust rockers and they splash enough onto the intakes that they work fine, but everyone that 'improves' that oiling system to put oil on the intakes too then complains about the constant blue smoke they get for doing that and all to often revert back to get rid of it. Just a heads up if you wanted to 'improve' your oil system while you are in there.

Thanks for the comments, Lee. Here"s what I"ve done: I unscrewed the oil pressure gauge and looked inside the hole with a strong light and mirror and didn"t see a small hole anywhere. I then took a very small modeling paint brush dipped in cleaning solvent and stuck it inside the hole as far as it would go and cleaned off the old oil. I probed the inside of the hole with a tempered small-gauge wire for a while, but had no luck finding it. After looking again with the mirror & light, I"m convinced there"s not a small hole in there. I"m stumped! Is there anything else I can try? Thanks.
