sequence valves will not let oil into the piston cooling jet
oil galleries until there is pressure in the main oil gallery.
This decreases the amount of time necessary for
pressure build-up when the engine is started.  It also
helps hold pressure at idle speed.

There is a piston cooling jet (18) below each
piston. Each cooling jet has two openings. One opening
is directed at a passage in the bottom of the piston. This
passage takes oil to a manifold behind the ring band of
the piston. A slot (groove) is in the side of both piston pin
bores and connects them with the manifold behind the
ring band. The other opening is directed at the center of
the piston.
This helps cool the piston and gives
lubrication to the piston pin.
