[ The tubes are cake, it is the orifice size and how they spray that has me wondering.
Everything I have seen is a dribble. BMW has used the dribble for years.


i know a .020 size hole is big enough to shoot what appears to be quite a large stream. i dont know how much oil is needed but in order to get a spray, you would need a smaller hole than that or a nozzle. think how much fuel comes out of a #31 accel pump nozzle.

Here are some pics of my old ones from Comp.


1/8 NPT threaded bungholio with -4AN fitting





The oil hole is mid way between the weld and the end plug. Very small black spec there in pic. One on each side at about 45 degrees from center.

Measure the hole and it is no problem welding to the Chineese aluminum. Shocked

Both Kieth and I can drill with a chineese drill bit if you want. Laughing

We are trying to help a fellow Smoker not inhale the BS about Chineese taking our jobs.

I have made $$ last year fixing a couple of parts that were American made. Mad

Yes I put that in there for you Adam...

That hole is .020" looking at it with a set of calipers. Small for sure. I can certainly measure the dimensions for the tube drop spacing too.

Make sure you have ran plenty of oil though the covers before anyone welds them! Laughing

Seriously Get it done!

Oil through the covers? The pics are of the old covers that don't fit. Not sure I understand what you are talking about. The new ones are still in the box.

Oil can make aluminum a nightmare. Somehow it seems to "soak" in for lack of a better term. Clay

Aluminum is porous for sure but it depends on the quality.

So parts to make these are not something one of you guys can make?

Have to go without the oilers then?

So I need to provide some dimensions for the tubes ect..

Should be easy to copy what I have in the comp covers.

Yes.

I have dead soft aluminum at 1/4". It looks like the down tubes are 3/8" ?? I have plenty plugs for the ends just need a couple #4 bungholios.

2 new cylinders of Argon. Ring and pinion out of the car.. We are good to go.

Have the set on my car in case I blow a hole through that Chineese set you bought.
Shyt!! mine are the same!

I think Keith might have an a/c also.
