Rocker oil feed pipe query ?
« on: 31.07. 2012 22:01 »
Making up a new rocker oil feed pipe & just noticed in various articles / photographs that this could be fitted either feeding into the banjos from below or from above if that makes any sense ?
Is there a prefered arrangement please before I solder the assembly together ?

Thanks in advance ,

Steve ..

Ive phrased that badly I realise ..hope Someone can make sense of it ?

Stephen,
                    It seems that they were upside down for a couple of years, maybe around 1957.
Use silver solder, not soft solder as it tends to crack.
