    Default Torington bearing oil mod

    I have a roll master timing chain going into my gen V BBC I have three galley plugs up front. The drawing that came with the kit, show a very different galley plug arrangement. Has any one done a gen V before? I'm sure I've seen, a process before, but can't remember where. or how.

    My timing chaim came with a Torrington Bearing on the back of it, but had no directions for "oil mods", and none were done, and it's been happy 4 years now, but on a Mk-IV, not a Gen-V.

    It's probably a gen5 thing. Those blocks are wierd. Probably the reason for the short run and the coming of the gen6.
