One of the fittings on my 261 for routing oil to the head/rockers sticks out too far for me to use the cast aluminum side cover I have. The original stamped cover has a relief pressed into it to accommodate the fitting that the cast covers don't.
I am considering removing the line under the pushrod cover, plugging the connections, and then running a line from where the filter (now full flow) connections are, directly to the side of the head where the plug is in this photo
]. That plug is at the top end of the galley that feeds the rockers.
The head I'm using is an 848 from a 235 and I'm not really sure what the plugged passage into the main galley was originally intended for...in fact, in a lot of the pics I've seen of 235s and 261s, it's just plugged.
Anyone think there'd be any issue doing this??
