Ok, so here's what so far. Pulled the valve cover off on passanger side which is where the noise seems to be coming from. First I had checked that the oil sender unit was pluged in and that the plug wires were correct, and those checked out so with the valve cover off I started the truck. Seemed to be iol around the valve train but pretty noisy and I couldn't see any oil flow. Dried off the rockers and where oil pools in the head at the front half of the head at the bottom area of the head/valve cover area. Couldn't see any more oil comimg out, then figured the push rods should be where the oil is flowing from into the top end and no oil coming out of the top of the push rods. Now, I am only idling the engine but I should get some oil I think. I am trying to get a gasket for the pump to block and if I get one I am going to pull the pump and put on a different old one I have. Just to check if its the pump or some blockage on the pass side of the oil system. I doont want to put a new pump on because the engine will be coming out in a couple of months and I want to run a high volume but with a new deeper pan and 1/2 pick up.
