Lightbulb squeaky rattle

Hi Metroschultz.
The squeaky rattle seems to be coming from under the motor somewhere, but not from inside the valve cover. At first glance it appears that the oiling is okay under the valve cover; a cam lobe directly under the oil cap is flipping oil out the opening with the cap off. Of course that doesn't mean that the cam bearings are getting oil through the pressurized oiling system, but like I said, it doesn't seem like the squeak is coming from under the valve cover. Thanks for the heads-up, though, and I'll keep an ear out for that problem.
