Default Re: Timing gear oiling?

OK: I'm anal. about this lack of lubrication to the timing gear area of the late flathead blocks. I have taken the timing cover off of other blocks and they all seem dry in there, (compared to the valve valley or crankshaft area) these areas all are wet with oil from the last time the engine was run! So I redrilled the pipe plug in the timing gear chamber.020"
which will give me a few drops of oil without robbing the front cam bearings or crankshaft of oil.......now my increased loads on my cam shaft have been satisfied!
