Question regarding oiling system

I am getting closer to putting the 351W into the 1951 F1, however
I am replacing the timing chain and the old chain appears to not being oiled. Is there a forum that I should address this to or has someone
had experience with this condition. I was looking for some tubes or troughs for the oil to lube this chain. Any ideas are appreciated.
The engine is a 1984 with all the smog stuff removed.

It's going to be fine. The distributor drive and timing chain is oiled by drainback splash from the lifter valley through this hole...

Hi Wayne,
Thought you could answer this question for me. I am changing over to Serpentine belts and is a tensioner rerquired or just tighten the belt like the old "V" system?
Thanks for your time.
Roger

A tensioner is required. And they are pretty handy, too. It takes all the guesswork out of fitting your belt.

Wayne, this engine is a 1984 and never had a tensioner, so do you know what year I could get one off of? I'm not sure where this is going to mount without having the brackets for the alternator and power steering. Pic's would be great if you have one.
Thanks so much for your help.

I don't know what specifically you have, so it's hard to say what you need. AFAIK, a serpentine belt system wraps around accessory pulleys and uses a tensioner to keep everything together. If your new engine has a serpentine system that does something different, and it works, then go with it. But like I said, the drawing here is typical for what I know, and the red unit is the tensioner.



maybe it would be better for you to post a pic of what you have.

After looking at all the retro-fits I have to do I think I'll stay with the "V" belt. Much simpler in relation to all the other issues I'm dealing with. Older is better in my book.
Thanks so much for your input.
