From what I've seen on early brass twist oiler cars (my '14 included) is the oiler is on top at the rear and towards the bottom in the front so as Corey alluded to that makes oiling easier.

Re: timer relocater(or?)

I purchased a "baby" size Vise-Grip that I lock onto the flats of the lifter body and let it swing over against the valve chamber & let's me have both hands for the wrenches - helps for sure !!!
