Pat I thought this flex joint was below the level of oil in the pan. Your idea of an o ring or brazing it closed is also good information. Thanks.

I have often wondered how much wear could take place in that pivot joint over 80 odd years use. I have been holding off on the engine work until the body work during the current restoration is almost complete. In the near future I will be removing the sump etc. I think fixing the floating head in the lowest position is a good move. On the subject of increasing oil pressure any end float in the oil pump gears will reduce oil pressure. Carefully linishing the oil pump body on fine emery paper by hand will reduce the end play. Place the emery paper on a sheet of flat glass.
