You know how well this engine runs and longevity is about the only thing I'd like to improve. Pressure would do that and knowing what the crossfire symptoms are, I'm sure that won't compromise things again.
Which system for pressure is favoured by the members here. Plumbing in the valve chamber or in the crank case?
I think I prefer the latter so that oil can get to the top of the engine after going through the bearings and then get to the timing gears.
It is no burden to carry a little extra knowledge.
