    I have a 4.6 four cam that recently we discovered developed oilo starvation on the right head. Upon autopsy we found the crankshaft entension was bent and damaged some of the main bearings. However I also made the observation that the right head was fed oil after the crankshaft was done with it (rather interesting way for ford to direct oil there) anyway I was thinking that since there are plugs in the rear of both of those heads I might be able to install a line from the left head to the right head. I am courious if I will cuase any adverse affects. I realize that FoMoCo engineers may or may not have thought about this and maybe I should just leave it alone but the fact that one of the heads is last in line for much needed oil kinda disturbs me. I would sincerly appriciate any imput that anyone could give me and thanks in advance.

    Does the "YUP" imply that you agree with my assessment and my plan to correct the "problem" or ?????
