1660gph/14 cyl is 118gph per cyl

102rpm is 6120 hits per hour

118gph/6120hits per hour is 0.019gal/hit

128oz per gal x 0.019gal/hit is 2.48oz per hit.

An old crusty ships engr told me it was a shot glass per hit on his engine. Being old, it was a smaller but similar engine. So the numbers seem to jive.
