    Been using studs on my Prowler for the head, and cylinder, downside is one of the studs has to have a reduced shank to provide an oil passage to the top end. I'm building a spare motor and was looking at the case, and It looks like an external oil line can be added to feed the top end! The studs I'm using are 10mm, in three locations, and a factory bolt in the oil hole. I've snapped several of the factory bolts off, and at 22 dollars a pop, it gets expensive! I'm cleaning the case now, and then drill and tap the case for Aeroquip fittings and line. Once I get it ready, I'll post some pictures!

    I'm just spitballing here but wouldn't a stainless steel like work and look better? maybe get really fancy and use some finned tubing for added cooling?

    S/S aero quip line is what I intend to use! Looks like a dash 3 line (3/16")will provide the necessary volume of oil. Just to the left of the oil filter pad AC has a
    machined passage already in the block! I traced the passage up to the cylinder head bolt hole it feeds.

    Is that a threaded plug just underneath the oil filter base in that picture? Is that where you're going to tap into or are you going to drill and tap the galley?

    I'm assuming that threaded plug is an oil pressure test port? Would that be on the filtered or unfiltered side of the oil filter?

    It is on the filtered side, inner cover may not allow clearance for a fitting.
