Brings back memories !

Old-school engine-builder`s nostalgic trivia:

I always spot-brazed the oil pickup to its tube to avoid any possible disasters in the future. I`ve filed a few ring gaps as well....used to take care to stagger the gaps around the piston, later on, observed that after a few thousand miles, they always seem to line up over the wristpin anyway....
Viva la Plastiguage !


P.S.: Thanks for sharing....hope it runs like a bat out of Hell
