Maybe a stupid question:
If you drilled the hole (like in the oil bath method) and removed the oil seal do you think enough oil would get up there like a a standard "old School" distributor to keep things lubed? I guess the housing would fill with oil if things worked wonderful and then drain down via the hole when the engine is shut off. Of course you'd want the housing sealed pretty good to keep contaminated oil draining back down into the engine.
Second stupid question:
Considering a healthy engine with little wear--is the crankcase under a slight vacuum from the PVC hose or is it canceled out?
Vacuum hose to the sealed OPDA housing to help suck oil up from the pinion gear area?
