Should I be getting a strong pulse from the crankcase at the rockerbox fitting to oil tank ?
It is close to being as strong as the pulse coming from the primary case. I am just wondering if this would cause too much pressure in the rockerbox and restrict the gravity feed of the oil back down the pushrod tube. Can I vent this to the atmosphere or tee into the airbox?

Snakepit, it's all in GPZ's words........ 'WELL WORN' Keep an eye on your oil consumption. Could need valve giudes, vales and piston rings. When you start it from cold, is there a 'pinging' noise comming from the engine which goes away when it warms up? If so that's common piston wear and to be expected in a T140...... check the oil regularly though.

Yep, HUGE difference between "well" worn, and "badly" worn!

With one, you have a nice old beater that smokes a little, with the other, you have either a rolling piece of junk, or a basket case.
