Miura Cam oilers to primary gear set
click for larger
1) Camoilers to primary gears, not too pretty but makes the concept
stand out. Nothing like red and blue AN fittings to make it look like
like your teenage son did the installation with AutoZone parts.
2) Notice 1" sump spacer to lower sump and add capacity, this engine
must also have lowered sump suction and most likely added baffles.
3) Notice early oil vent casting, all silver engine, Weber vents......all indicating an early Miura engine.

2) indicates rear cam oil tap to primary gears.
Comment - since the inlet fuel line looks so nice, why does the new
added recicrc line look so amatuer? The inlet has matching crimped
brass collars, just slight excess to allow for engine shake. The new
line (at least it is not red and blue fittings) looks sloppy, should
have had brass collars, banjos of a reduced size, matching excess,
etc....... to look like it was a factory job.
photo shows just one type of modification to allow for cam oil to
be routed to primary gear set. These are the most common places to tap
the primary case.
Cam oiler tap points to allow drain oil from heads to trickle to primary gear set.
