Just curious as to some of the factors that influence the plugging of the oil return passages. I thought some pistons had larger return/relief passages, but I don't know much about these details.

a. 20/50 phillips
b. have no idea.
c. slick mags.

Just did mine, 1,2,3 all flushed fine, could hardly get it to flush number four, tried 3 times. We’ll see if it frees up.

That means the flush will probably help. Hang some weight from the prop and come back tomorrow. Repeat as needed.
