I am close to building up the engine for a trial fit but something is bothering me.

The engine has oil feeds drilled through the crankcase into the main bearings supplied by the oil pump but I cannot see any feed to the camshaft bearings.

What puzzles me is the end cam bearing [cam gear end] , has a grove and hole in it which looks like it should be fed with oil.

Obviously this question is only aimed at anybody who has the plans.

Can't see anything obvious on the drawings but as you say the hole must be there for a reason. Ask on MEM forum as there are a couple of members there who have built it.
