59 A7SS Where is My Rocker Feed?
« on: 20.05. 2018 14:26 »
I have bought the 42-8346/7  main  oil pipes (steel shielded type) and I have a plain ended new rocker  feed pipe. The pipes will screw in directly to the oil tank rear  and  from there to the BSP adapters coming off the crankcase.

But where is the junction and part # for the rocker feed? I can see in the 1960  part list a 42-013? (illegible) rocker lower feed banjo with a small rubber hose joint. But not any junction?

Will appreciate...............

Hi Peter,
The return oil line fitting on the oil tank has a longer thread and a cross drilling
The banjo fits on there with a fibre washer either side, a thin 1/4BSP nut holds the banjo in place
then the return pipe coupling fits as normal

Peter, here's photo of it on 1960 GF taken only last week when I fitted a remote filter.
The special (thin) nut is available and is pt no 42-8340 (I bought one a couple of weeks ago).
The rocker oil feed pipe pt no 42-0139 is actually in two parts and joined by the rubber sleeve pt no 40-8327.

Thanks very much Roger for the time taken to show me this! Its very helpful..luckilyI have a supply of (rare) 'herringbone'  rubber sleeves so will be perfect with this set-up.
