Cam holder oil lube hole

Recommended Posts

Should oil squirter out the Cam holder oil hole when your kicking the motor over?

Was checking my valve spec today and noticed that the head did not have lots of oil laying around inside. Wanted to check if the Cam oil lube hole was squirting oil and must have kicked it over about 30 times and saw no oil squirt out of it.

Does not appear to be any heat damage to the Cam or any of the other parts.

Is this normal or will the oil only pass through passage when the motor is running?

If you used the estart Im sure oil would get to the top end but you cant kickstart it fast enough or continuously to push oil up through the top.

Since you said that there is no dis coloration or damage to the top end components it must be getting plenty of oil up to the top.

Thanks TDW, makes sense that that the oil pump would need continuous pressure to push oil to the top if the head.
