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.
