Oil line dosent go in the front like that, thats the crankcase drain plug. Oil line goes into the hole in the top of reed valve plate on the back and.just drips in and oil gets sucked in with the air flow

I run my engines at 10 drops / minute. At the moment we are not driving anything so they just tick over at low rpm. If that sounds excessive I don't mind or charge for 'weed control'.
