Oil chute
« on: 06 Sep 2020 at 10:13 »
Hi can anybody enlighten me about the 'oil chute (C11311)'. Should this item be open backed relying on close contact to the 'binding plate' to provide a seal or should it be sealed with a steel plate forming a sealed item. I think probably the former unlike the one on my Model Z which has been badly soft soldered to a steel plate the plumbers solder used has then subsequently partially melted and infiltrating other components including bearings, not a good idea.
