Default Re: Oil dripping from magneto wires

I'm quite well versed on the old radial engines.
The newer generation of radial engines developed through the second world war leaked their fair share of oil, or simply burnt the stuff in prodigious quantity, particularly with a cylinder missing.

The saying:

If it ain't leaking any oil, it doesn't have any!

comes from the American (round engine) service mechanics of the second world war.
