Rocker oil feed
« on: 16.08. 2014 22:18 »
Wasn't sure whether to put this on Drewbacks thread but didn't want to hijack the thread. I've noticed that on some bikes (saw a nice a7 shooting star at the steam rally today with the inverted version) the oil feed pipes run down to the tee piece join and then back up to the banjo feeds while on others the tee goes downwards to the banjos. Does this matter and why the difference? Ta. Met.

Good question!
I don't think anyone knows, it seems that possibly around 1956-7 they were done that way.
