down from the oil-cap and settles on the edge will go down into the head and not spill out onto the valve cover. IMO the oil holes with vertical orientation makes a better design and function.
Those of you who have the horizontal oil-cap hole with no hole will have oil always leaking onto the valve cover, regardless of how many times they clean it.
