Kind of like the Clevelands were.

Not sure yet how I will do all three mains. The cam journals can be oiled from the top. A boss above each journal is drilled down through a top/center galley and then plugged with a 1/8 NPT plug.

I think I have main journal oiling figured out!!! I will know for sure as my new model takes shape. I started on it today and the front is pretty far along.
