      For anyone interested i was trying to figure out what the small oil lines going to the top end lubricated, turns out, nothing all they do is pressurize a small pocket of oil between the rocker box and the chrome cover, that it the oil can't even flow it just sits in that pocket with nowhere to escape, does anyone else see it this way

        The pressurized oil goes to the rocker part of the heads, pushing oil to the intake valve springs, then the oil runs to the exhaust side to help cool the heads.
        Push rods feed oil to the rocker arms, then runs to the rocker tips oiling the valve tops.

      Just a thought, could the rocker shaft be rotated and a new grove be machined into it to accept the original bolt ???

        Yes it could but that is more work and expense than needed to lock it in place. The groove would have to also be cut smaller to fit the bolt tight and not sloppy like the OEM fit.The 1600's have a solid shaft and the 1700's have a hollow shaft so imo if I was gonna do it like that on a 1700 I would flip the shaft end for end so I didn't weaken the hollow shaft by having 2 groove cut into the same end.
