    Steve,
    Worked out my oiler problem.
    I assumed the handlebars were assembled correctly. bad idea on my part.
    I stripped both spirals and I have a left and a right. And of course they were backwards.
    I will swap the spirals over and my oil pump will work as it is designed.

    I found two different inlet towers, so i have just cleaned up a matching pair of 28's and have rockers to match.

    Hopefully get the motor sealed up tomorrow.
    Cheers,
    Mick

    If you haven't heard of Gene Austin, he put out many #1 jazz hits throughout the 20's. i remember Dad singing several of these songs when i was a kid. Wasn't until i found Gene that i realized where Dad got these songs....! Dad in is ROTC uniform astride his JD. He was a bit of a hooligan, i remember him telling me how he would prowl Burnett Woods in Cincinnati late nights, early mornings shining his spotlights into steam-covered car windows. Am sure if he'd been caught by the police, wouldn't have been good. Nowadays that's called impersonating a police officer.......
