The pushrods themselves are hollow and oil is pumped up them to 
lubricate all the junctions between the pushrods, the rocker arms, 
the rocker shafts and the valves.

All this oil drips down continuously and flows back to the sump via 
the push rod tubes. That is where it normally is when you adjust the 
valves.
