Re: Ford Faithful for an outside oil line?

Jeff, If it really is that steep, then you are still probably not getting the oil to the front that you think you are, and even if you were, it's not staying where you need it for long enough. Consider placing dams into your pan. Something along that line is here: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messag...

Re: Ford Faithful for an outside oil line?

After winning the "worst triple gear failure ever seen" award and burning up a couple of #1 rod bearings driving up my hill, I now have all three extra oilers. Ford faithful, drilled hogshead and the mag post oilier. And I installed Dan Mckearchen's needle bearing triple gear mod. To be fair, my 1/2...

That’s a whole different issue but I’m investigating it. It has to do with the way the camera/phone is held when taking the pic. There are some solutions but it’s not an easy fix.

This has become a hot topic for sure. Such great info! There are as many approaches to heating a shop as there are folks in this hobby. The O2 depletion theory makes sense.
