Hi,
I'm rebuilding my engine and when I removed my cam cover I didn't notice an oil dristributing rod. I looked in the Haynes manual and it show a rod that suppose to distribute the oil over the rocker arms. Should I see this there or is it possible that the previous owner removed it? If it should be there and its not do I need to go to the Pick and Pull and grab one or is it fine without it? I'm ready to put the engine back together and had always questioned that from the beginning but now its almost ready to go back into the car so I need to know now.
Thanks,
