Default Re: I-4 and SV Engine Non-Oiling Rocker Assembly

Closeup of the bottom (important side!) of the oiler stand.

Ya can't see it very well in this pic...but that lube hole is completely blocked with sludge and carbon. The rocker shaft that was fed from this particular stand received no lubricant for a very long period of operation. The shaft ya see in this pic is not the badly worn shaft that was fed (or not fed) by this stand!

In addition to showing severe wear at the shaft/rocker bushing interface, the shaft pivot point itself was heavily scored and had actually turned blue from overheating/lack of lube. And the entire bushing had disappeared from the rocker arm also.
