Piston oil jets (Oil Squirters)
Another fun shipment arrived today.
These are genuine mercedes squirters. Thanks Euro truck. I will try to document the process of machining the block to accept these. (my block does not have any machine work done to facilitate jets)
If anyone needs info off these jets, let me know before they make it to the machine shop. They do look a bit different than some I have seen, but they will do the job.
I was going to make my own jets, but I didn't now how big the jet orifice was so I was unsure of flow rating for them.
If I were to make my own, I would consider brazing a tube into a threaded plug, then machine the block with only threads and no spot face. Then bend the tube by hand to aim the jet. This would make it almost possible to install these while the engine is in the truck still.
