I am building a 1928 500 ohv (and have been since time began...its the reason why I joined the AOMCC in 1996 or 7ish) - I have most of the bits but the oil union on the timing cover confuses me - my timing cover has a threaded insert upon which I guess some kind of banjo fitting should attach the bottom end of the oil feed pipe from the oil tank. The oil feed pipe has the hollow banjo type fitting but I am at a loss as to what the fastener looks like.
Can anyone shed any light on what should be there? And does anyone have a spare (or know where I can get one)?
