Re: lowest oil pressure for engine to survive

I usually use a piece of 1/4" pipe 3/8" thick for a spacer. If it also
has a valve in the pump the valve with the weakest spring will
determine the pressure. G.M.

Re: Source for valve spring shims

Valve springs need to be measured with a special valve spring measuring
machine. A load is put on the spring and it should be a specific length at
a measured amount of pressure. G.M.

Re: 28-48 universal joint wear

The U joint takes a lot of grease, over a tube. I use a low
drip point chassis lube. If the U joint is low on grease it
will make noise and quiet down when more grease is
applied. G.M.
