Valves

Figure most of you have already seen something like this but what the heck. The thing I am pointing at is the hole on the top of the rocker that shoots out oil, then I am tracing it down showing how the oil flows. It's all at about 650RPM, not sure what it was at when I revved it up, 1200 maybe. I know I know, I have blowby :lmao:

Yeah it's the video. I don't think the frame rate is high enough. My camera is 60fps but youtube might scale it back to something lower. I notice the raw footage doesn't seem to have the weird pattern.

Did you just rebuild it? man that is clean inside. I think that is just normal oil for lubrication of the top of the valve area

Nope, thats 330k miles of wear :lmao: The oil comes out of the hole on top. Heres a pic of it without the engine running.

Yeah...

Now for the 24V valve train is a bit different... The oil wells up at the pivot point and floods down to the tip of the rocker arm run down the bridge to the valves.
