DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION
An additional tapping is included at the front left hand side of the cylinder head to supply oil to the chain lubrication
jet and a through hole near the front centre of the cylinder head allows a passage of oil through from the cast-in
groove to lubricate the timing chain and camshaft sprocket.
At the centre front of the cylinder head, the cast-in groove channels oil into the rocker shaft via the front rocker
shaft fixing. Oil flow through the rocker shaft and clearance around the rocker shaft fixings provides oil feed to the
A tapping towards the right hand side of the cylinder head diverts oil supply from the cast-in groove down to a stub
pipe which attaches to a feed line to the vacuum pump. An hydraulic tensioner is located below the vacuum stub
pipe which receives oil through a small hole in the side of the tensioner body to force a plunger against a plastic
faced adjuster shoe for timing chain tensioning. Oil from the vacuum pump is returned to the a port in the timing
chain cover via a short hose which connects to stub pipes at both ends using spring clips.
