The govenor does not have a oil inlet. Do I need to install one and run the oil line there? The casting on the block shows B116 which I think means a Feb 11, 1946 engine. I got this out of Kamloops BC for $500 and it had almost new tires all around. but the engine was siezed up. I restored an 8N 3 yrs back with all your help on the forum.

A farmerization that probably breaks things and possibly why you had a siezed engine. That oil line flow is inline with the mains/rods and is sucking off pressure. Remove that kludge - the valves do not need it and it only confuses the issue.

Sorry - I didn't read carefully and jumped in with foot in mouth. I thought the line was off the tee at the back - not the oil filter outlet. That rerouting won't hurt anything.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeIf I follow your oil line description correctly.........then what has been done is that the oil filter outlet (bottom center) has been routed into the valve cover instead of into the governor (or as before the governor oiling scheme, into the block(see pic), just below the filter. I would want it corrected, too, but I'm afraid this (where oil filter return dumps) will NOT impact your low oil pressure.

Thanks for the pic. I'll run it to the block as shown. But I agree it won't help the oil pressure. or is there a good reason they went to the govenor?

Yes - the early governors were wearing out prematurely due to lack of lubrication.
