Awesome...a home made total loss lubrication system. IMO it would have worked better is the PO would have shoved (yes that's a mechanical term used in many shop manuals) a section of rubber hose over each end of the cut frame tube...removed one intake and one exhaust tappet cap and routed the hoses into the tappet cap holes letting the oil dump into the engine rather than lubricating the top of the rocker box. I give him an A for effort though, oil that recirculates ends up with contaminants from the combustion process,not to mention metal particles from the usual wear and tear of metal to metal part contact....brilliant I say. Oil tanks, sealed crankcases, and motor mounts are all over rated anyway.
