Not a very interesting picture, to be sure, but the four oil holes on top of my 301 (Clarice, see the bow?) needed new wicking material. The old wicking was rock hard.
I had ordered the wicking from McMaster Carr a while ago and just never got brave enough to tear the old stuff out and put the new in. As with a lot of things, I don't know why I waited so long. It was not difficult.
I had an old dental tool that came in handy for poking the new wicking into the holes. Not sure that I cut the wicking to the right size, but we shall see if things work okay or if I have to redo it. Pleased that it is done for now.
