    I have searched the forum for this but cannot find an answer. Is it worth the trouble modifying the oil feed to T160 spec. There is nothing in the clubs service notes about this modification. I have the engine stripped down at the moment.

    I believe it is, and Richard Darby mentioned recently that he does that change on all engines he builds. I first did it in 1981, and most recently last year. Richard ( 3D Motorcycles) carried out the work to the crankcase last time and I bought a T160 oil tank filter/outlet from LPW. If you’re in any doubt, speak to him before arranging.

    Hi Ian, As you have the motor stripped it is probably worthwhile doing the mod. The purpose of it is purely to deliver a greater quantity of oil to the crank when the engine is cold. To get the benefit of this your oil pump will also need to be in good condition (blueprinted), you will also need to fit the larger oil tank strainer from a later T160 (straight swap), and the larger flexible delivery oil pipe and union. Make sure that your oil pump also has the delivery port in the base plate opened up to match the new crank case drilling.

    I hope this helps.

    Cheers
    Roy

      Thank you Roy for you input. I will be going ahead with the mod.
