How much oil should be used in the head, and how much.

 How much??    :D ;)

I squirt 30W in one rocker top until it bubbles out the other one.  If you get too much it runs down the engine OR goes through the 'fifth' head bolt and into the cooling water jacket.  Keep the valve depressions juicy but not swimming.

7200 hrs on 6-1/5Kw, FuKing Listeroid,
Currently running PS-Kit 6-1/5Kw...and some MPs and Chanfas and diesel snowplows and trucks and stuff.

Rocker Oiling
« Reply #3 on: April 21, 2006, 01:03:45 PM »
Based on Hotaters reply my rocker shaft may be rotated to far aft. The only shaft hole which is exposed is a sliver of the exaust side and that is only when the valve is fully open. Is my assumption correct? Is the shaft supposed to be full of oil?
Thanks, Geno

(Next day) Never mind, I did'nt realize how easy it was to rotate and position the rocker shaft in its holder. I probobly moved it during disassembly.
