no oil to topend of rubicon

Ive got a 2005 rubicon and it is not getting oil to the topend. First of all hondamatic seemed to be working how it should be, no noise or anything odd so i must have oil pressure. now ive got engine out and tore back cover off. i traced the oil line pretty much to the subtrans and seems to be clear to that point where does the oil come from before that point any help would be great thanks in advance

Welcome to the forums. Looks like the oil runs up around one of the cylinder/head bolts to the top of the engine. If anyone has ever taken the head or cylinder off, they may have used some type of sealant on the gaskets and it may have stopped the hole up where it comes up around the outside of the cylinder stud.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

I agree with Helmut here. Many Hondas had flow restrictors installed as alignment pins between the head and cylinders. These looked like the standard knock pin but had a small hole with a dia. of .010-.015" (WAG system of measument). Over use of silicone sealer has ruined many a top end.
