292 Ford oil system question

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by frontenginedragsters, Jan 12, 2012.

  1. Hello HAMBers.
    We have a 292 Ford in our engine shop and wonder if there is any common oil system upgrades that should be done.
    Thanks: Matt

    Make sure the oil passages are completely open through the camshaft bearings. The passages may be drilled a bit off and require redrilling and polishing of the bearings.

    And the upper oil passages from center cam bore up thru both decks thru the heads to the rocker stand base.

    Like said above, if the cam bearings are not put in correctly, (with the bearing oil holes lined up with the oil holes in the block) the valve train will not get any oil.
