How do the connecting rod caps/cylinder get lube? I thought there is a slinger of some sort. My rod caps don't have anything!

The magnets on the flywheel make a oil mist to lube it all.

There is also a tube with a funnel runs from just in front of the flywheel to just behind the camshaft gear. These tend to plug up with band lint and various by products of combustion. This is how oil gets to the front of the pan. My trick to see if this oil feed pipe is still in the game is to take out the right front Bolt that attaches the pan to the bottom of the crankcase,put something under it to catch the oil and start 'er up. Oil should run out the hole the bolt came out of in a stream. If it does not, or is real slow, time for an outside oil line kit.

Every so often I run the engine at a quick idle, take the cap off the spout and watch to see if there is oil splattering between the teeth of the gears and getting to the inside of the filler hole. :-)
