Just like a Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Buick, or Cadillac... and some non-V8 Chevrolets.
Hank the Crank and Mario Rossi went to elaborate lengths to alter the Cleveland oiling system. Down in Australia, nobody worried much about it, either at the drags or at Bathurst.
I had one stroker engine stick a valve on the run stand, for no reason I ever found out. It pretzeled a Manton pushrod and spat a lifter out, which dropped the oil pressure to zero. I welded up a retained bar and bolted it into the lifter valley; it keeps the lifters from coming out. I've done that to several Clevelands since.
