Re: No Oil Pressure While Cranking

Update. I decided to just test fire it-lots of oil pressure. No radiator yet so I only ran it for a brief period. Will see how it goes when I can get it up to temp.
Thanks for all the advice.

Re: No Oil Pressure While Cranking

Update. Got it running and oil pressure is good, over 50 psi cold. I could not run it long because there is no radiator installed yet.

Re: No Oil Pressure While Cranking

Yes to oil in the cylinders. It is a 12 volt system.
Gong to go with the try and start it with a close eye on the oil pressure gauge.
If that fails can try pouring oil into the oil port.

Re: Oil Filter Info. Needed

I dunno, if they redesigned it because of a problem, it will still have the problem, right. Thanks for all the information. We will figure something out.

Re: Oil Filter Info. Needed

A 5/64" -.078 drill bit will no go nor, will a 1/16"-.0625 drill bit.
I suspect the hole to be .060 but, do not have a way to gauge it.
So, suggestions?
