Default Re: Timing gear oiling?

OK I'm anal about the dry area I keep finding in other flathead blocks in this cam gear area. so I redrilled a .020" hole in the pipe plug, to help with the increased loads on my camshaft.

After looking at other late flathead blocks the valve Vally and the crankshaft areas were wet with oil from last being run BUT the cam gear area was DRY!

This is on engines that perhaps have not been run for awhile.............
