GL1000 Oil orifice..

Post by olchris »

No doubt most have seen this before ,but new to me... I have been preparing to replace heads to block and have found an issue...

When i pulled the head i found both "Oil Orifice's tube " were installed as per photo... and i was sure they had never been off before!.

Not being real familiar with the oring situation/placement i found a "schematic" parts drawing that showed it installed the other way round :o :o :o , which would have the fatter part of the oilway tube into the block ??????? .. That orientation (fat side in block) seemed/felt the correct way around, but thats not how i found it when stripping it..

Can somebody please tell me its correct orientation... Thanks in advance.. opppps had another look at schematic and i read it wrong .. Pic shows correct orientation :oops: :oops: :oops:
