I usually post in the E-Type section as I don’t race and most all the info I can glean and/or need would come from that realm. That being relayed- I recently purchased a stock-sized-but-fabricated-in-aluminum set of rods and they do not come with a bushing in the small end and the OEM oil passage is not there (on purpose so they don’t break) between the big and small end. Instead there is a hole in the top of the small end and some channels inside cut near the hole, for oiling.
My question- I was contemplating an oil scraper by the crank, not as an RPM enhancer but to keep more oil in the pan and smooth out the idle a bit. Should I nix the scraper idea so as to keep “splash” going inside the crankcase, and under the piston so that my new conn rods have adequate supply at the small end?
