Re: 427 Side Oiler
Dan is right.
During assembly, the spring goes in first, then the relief valve with the pointy part sticking towards the pipe plug (towards you as you install it), then the pipe plug.
These reliefs arent really necessary, and remember these springs have worked for a while. I have a little .250 shim I made for between the spring and the valve, recommend you do it too.
You dont want that relief dumping before the oil pump relief dumps.
Many guys put a dowel in place of the spring, or plug the passage internally, but I dont really think thats necessary, shimming the spring does it
