Timing chest

Hi Jonathon,
There is no oil per say within the timing chest, other than what is supplied via the transfer ports to the cam feed, cylinder wall, big end, and what drips down the pushrod tubes.

Also if you had oil in the timing chest it would go through the openings back into the area of the crank!;)

Hope this helps
Neil
