Abstract (en)

An engine (2) has an oil slot unit with an oil inlet (271) that is communicated with an oil passage (26), and an oil outlet (272) that is directed to at least one of a timing chain (24, 34, 44, 54, 64) and a tension pulley (25, 35, 45, 55, 65) . Lubricating oil is pumped to flow from a crankcase (22, 52) to the oil slot unit via the oil passage (26), and is sprayed from the oil outlet (272) of the oil slot unit onto the at least one of the timing chain (24, 34, 44, 54, 64) and the tension pulley (25, 35, 45, 55, 65). Accordingly, wear between the timing chain (24, 34, 44, 54, 64) and the tension pulley (25, 35, 45, 55, 65) is reduced. <IMAGE>
