My solution to the plugged cam oiling dilemma was born when I first rebuilt the 930 ten years ago. I noticed that the very end ( nearest the driver, back of the engine ) oil holes were plugged with the oil cap nut. What I did was take those plugs out ( one from each side ) and replace them with banjo fittings then ran a tube to the front of the engine, dropping out of the shroud at the back. Letting those tubes drop and then installed brass compression ells with caps. When I would do my oil changes I would take the plug from the ig-coil and crank the engine for a few seconds and the oil would pump out of my cam drain tubes. What this accomplished was removing any crap that had built up in the ends of the cam oiling tubes; obviously a inch hole flows better than a pin-hole when one is wanting to remove crud.
