    Top end oiling

    Any of you who have been following my 1967 Chevelle build will know I have put a great deal into the LS2/LS3 build. So, for the past week I have been working out starting and running issues and today I finally got it to fire up and run on her own; oh, and she sounds glorious.

    My question is I am concerned about the amount, or lack there of, of oil that is coming out of the push rods to oil the rockers and springs. I have only ran this engine so far for about 10 minutes with oil psi at about 36-45 pounds and no higher than 1500 rpm. It barely spits oil and being this is my first LS build and need some help.
    There are some things you just can't test in a white lab coat.

    Sorry, I have never run mine with the rocker covers off so not sure how these compare to the oil spitting that something like what a SBC does at the rockers.
