Both ways Mike.
Now I did not do any oiling mods to the ARC rod though, they are fine as they come.

Then I drill a 3/16" hole in the center of the cap, no chamfer here.
The hole pictured is way too big....I dunno what I was thinking when I drilled it!

I screwed up here guys, thanks to meanmachine for catching this! If anyone has made this mod already I do apologize, but I think that much hole will cause problems! I don't know if it was a late night, grabbed the wrong drill or what but that is not right!

SO your Idea of No Problem is selling "a kid" the engine you used my bad advice on which could very well be about to come apart?
I bet he will think very highly of both of us!

The hole size I quoted was correct, 3/16...but the hole in the pic I had to have grabbed the 9/32 drill or something!
