I was thinking of that. Of course, there would be a lot of splash in there anyway if it's running oil in the case.

But if the oil comes in as a mist instead via the carb or whatever, I guess I wouldn't need steam oil in the water because with this setup oil vapor would be pulled from the crankcase. Any steam that gets past the rings might get sucked back into the cylinder on intake.

I bet in either case I would be smart to have a bung TIGed into the bottom of the case so I can put a drain plug in it.
