Thanks I used my phone so its not the most professional job . But it does get the point across and its a very simple job really .  I get tons of " emails and Pms on things guys want to see done" its just finding the time to do it during the actual job .

Nice, thanks. I wonder if the reliefs behind the holes are necessary like the stock case.
I suppose these could be done on an assembled engine?

I guess I should watch the video first. :embarrassed:

Well it would have to have the cam plate removed .  Some disassembly is needed to do this , I have another that will be here soon , 124 LC engine . I will post some pics of it as a crate to show what is needed to do this. Not much different than this really . But Some have already asked if I could post a step by step .. No big deal a few pics .

Just did another last night .  New black edition S&S 124. Took me 1.4 hours on the time clock from start to finish . I popped the lids removed the rocker supports Push rods and tubes. Held the lifters up pulled cam cover took apart the S&S oil pump drilled and back together .. 

For those that do this you will need a Impact driver to get the longer allens out of the pump.. They can be very hard to remove in some cases .. No pun meant there   :teeth:

Time wise to do the install for the S&S lines is longer than that . As pan removal is a must , tapping for the lines is a  test it and re tap deeper some times  as the case is thin and you need the fittings to be in the proper location( direction)  for hose routing .  So you do not want to go to far on the first tapping procedure.

Any good word out of S&S why they just don't drill them like factory from the get go?

I watched a video where the guy pressurized the crank case to push drilling chips out which he drilled.
