The one way valve introduces into the engine, in addition to the feed to the crankshaft. The feed is not dependent on the piston uncovering the port, rather the piston ascending the bore creates a vacuum that draws some oil in. As soon as the piston starts to descend, the one way valve shuts so that it does not blow a bunch of air up the pipe and displace oil for the next circuit. It is necessary.
