I am putting a K model oil pump in my KH, as I beleive a lot of the over oiling I am getting is coming from the bigger volume that the '72 pump puts out. We are also making a set of Torque plates, and I am putting in a set of K model pistons with the correct ring groves that I found New! They are Eastern MC, but must of been made before Gil decided to make them all the same as 45ci's with the small oil control rings.
My question is, if I am having over oiling problems, will removing the scatter screen before the breather valve help to get more oil out of the galley and keep it from backing up in the engine? If I blow it up, it will definately make a difference, but if I don't have to rebuild my top end every 1000 miles, I think it might be worth the risk. What do y'all think?
