When you convert to a dripper , effectively gravity is feeding the beak via the metering screw, the lower crank case suction pulse is then drawing the oil through the gland and into engine, does it work? is it more efficient than the complete pump ?
The main failing of the pilgrim pump is it’s lack of ability to draw or suck oil into itself, in other words no scavenge , if oil is driven under pressure into the pump the pumps output becomes more consistent, we then get around to the problem of the glands only allowing the engine to scavenge the oil for a small portion of it’s rotation, easy, remove the glands and fit oil seals, as soon as there is negative pressure in the crankcase oil will be drawn through the oil line ,into the engine
