  1. Improved rocker oil flow - TR6

    Anybody consider modifying the camshaft to increase oil flow to the rockers?

    I rebuild the '73 TR6 engine recently, and one of the last steps was to prime the oil galley by using a slotted shaft in the distributor hole to the oil pump, driven by a drill.
