So last week I put the drill to the pump after hooking up a mechanical oil line and got nothing. Got back to it today to pull the pump (got my gaskets from mopar) and decided to turn the pump again because I have a fresh charge on the drill. It pumps oil up right away. Hook up the guage and its reading 50 psi no problem. Now remember there was no oil APPARENTLY pumping through to the passanger side valve train and it was really noisy and seeming to be getting noisier as the engine ran (with no pressure reading on the electric guage. So I put the distributor and gear back in and fired it up today. Still noisy on the passenger side but nowhere near as loud as it was. Now just a loud lifter or maybe exhaust sort of sound. What the hell is happening? This is getting werry weird. Evil, what kind of demon could this be? (There is the chance that the pump was not turning with the drill before or not turning fast enough but I can't be sure now either way. But I am pretty sure the oil wasnt flowing on the pass side because with the engine running before when it was loud there was not oil run off at all with the valve cover off. Now oil is dripping down to the exhaust manifold).
