Definitely wet sumped,used to get this nearly every other day with a C11g because the gears on the pump are so crap oil just leaks through them,solution is buy a cnc made from dragonflies shop.never put a valve in unless your memory is good !

I had that on a 650 Triumph rebuild, it blow out oil from everywhere about 2 minutes after starting it up. I kept it running and the valve released, I got away with it.

Is that an A65 Lightning Lyn, god they could vibrate, I would need several trips to the dentist after trying to rev out one of those.

I think it is, i will ask him next time he pops in for some thing :lol: he said he will bring me the oil pump to see if i can fix it :o
From what i hear i could make one better that BSA did with a drill and a file :D
