Forgot to mention it has 40lbs of oil pressure so it's not an o pressure problem. Thinking more along the lines of a blocked passageway.

I am not familiar with the TO30, however on a M.F. 65 (continental gas engine) the rocker shaft can be installed so no oil gets to the rockers. Rotate the shaft one half turn and you will get oil, but not what I would call a gusher.

The I.T. service manual instructs readers to install the shaft so no oil is delivered.

The Massey service manual gives directions that yield flow to the rockers.

Got it figured out. Pulled the rocker shaft off and blew air through the oil passage and everything was ok. Blew air down the oil passage in the head and nothing. Pulled the head off and found someone has put the wrong head gasket on it at some point in its life. There was no hole for the oil passage. Happened to have a gasket kit for one I got with another tractor and its got the hole in it.
