I've been helping a friend refresh his 1922 engine. The internal oil line looks like a home brew rebuild. Looks like an original funnel soldered to some 1/4" copper tube. Looks OK. I was wondering if the later oil line with the large funnel would work just as well? Will the larger funnel fit in the 1922 engine? Mike
Yes it will, be sure the funnel is securely attached.
Thanks, it should make an improvement. Mike
Mike, if you fit a new repro large funnel tube, I would advise brazing the funnel to the tube before fitting. Donald is onto it.
Hope this helps.

The large funnel oil tubes get more oil to the front, and get it there quicker. There's Ford testing that backs this claim up.
If you decide to install one of the reproduction large funnel tubes, pay particular attention to the clearance to the magnet mounting bolts. The one I recently purchased for a friend's engine required substantial modifications to provide clearance. I ended up using an original funnel anyway.
The large funnel will fit In the earlier motor, the only difference should be that it uses a different mounting bolt on the field coil. Again, it would be wise to verify adequate clearance to everything.
