Default Re: Over Fill Oil

Nope,cant put the cotter pin in through the inspection cover hole either..The model a engine lubrication system is like a monsoon,oil is splashed everywhere. On cold startup it takes about 30 seconds to completely fill the valve gallery..when the car sits oil drips from the main bearing clearances lowering the gallery level,startup is when your mains are most vulnerable to lack of lubrication..I run mine on cold start at about 1000 rpm,get the oil up to the valve gallery as fast as i can without load..
