      I would do it from above. I don't like having dust, dirt, and oil dripping into my eyes.

            Here's a pic of the instructions and one of an actual restrictor. They are just under 4" long with a about a 3/8" button on the end.

              That's exactly the one I was talking about. Dwain, you rock!

              Does the round disk have a hole in it or not?

                The restrictor button has a tiny hole that is mostly filled by the spring wire. Very little oil could go through there. The button is not a positive seal, so some pressurized oil is allowed to leak past it.

                  Only on the Studebaker Forum could this detailed information be possible to attain. You guys never cease to amaze me.
                  Keep up the great work, everyone.

                    Dwain G: Do you have one to get the measurements of. I'd sure like to have one. How would that button attack to the wire so it would stay put. Is that the only way oil gets to the valve chamber? Sure wouldn't want to starve for oil in the valve chamber.
