    The oil lines were the easy part. 1/8 copper is used on "oil pressure" guages in cars and is available at most auto stores. Stick a damp waded up Tshirt in the top of the body of shaper. Wife gave me one of those Mini butane torches that Chefs use to melt sugar on deserts. It give a penpoint flame. Heat it up and pull to remove. While hot wipe quickly with damp rag to remove excess solder. Reflux only where you want to solder to stick and hit what you are going to stick the copper tube in and the little torch put the flame just on it. I replaced the one that oils the rocker arm in about 10 minutes.

I was not going to do a full restore, but found my oil pump lever not working. It seems the previous owner didn't get the lever in the cam slot also.
    I have the same question about removing the flat head screws. Any answers? I was able to remove my taper pin and the cap screws but cant get the flat head screws out. I assume they need to come off to get the bull gear out. Any suggestionsimg_1036.jpgimg_1036.jpg?

    They make these in a couple sizes. They don't slip. Give it a couple smacks with a hammer with the bit in the slot before turning.
    Get one that fits the slot well.
