you see, it's your cam bearings that control your oil pressure. that's where the oil goes first from the oil pump.DDGRC84 said:your cam bearings are about shot... it's time for a rebuild. sorry.
this was my problem right before i built my motor. it finally dropped to 0, overheated and locked up. you might be able to keep it alive for a little longer with some thicker oil, but start planning on a rebuild.
I agree - You can loose psi with a worn/scored oil pump. The screen on the pick-up could also be clogged.Evildriver-3 said:Ok what you read in post # 3 is not true, a oil pump can lose psi, it can pump less after it is warm, you can have a host or problems, clogged filter- some filters plug up, bad pick ups can also cause this exact problem, as will a scored pump, so you can start with the filter and then remove the pump and inspect, and then look at mains, any bearing can make a motor lose psi, what ever bearing calls it quits that's where all the psi is going to.
