Default Re: 1931 Pickup Journal

Before you go further you really really need to drop the oil pan and clean it out . I think you will be astounded at what you have been pumping around the engine . Also clean out the valve chest ,debris in there can block the 3 holes which supply the main bearings with oil . I know the oil looked lovely clear and golden when you checked it but all the goop,water,acids etc etc were settled out just around the oil pump pickup . Check "You Tube " there is a post on what a oil pan looked like after a long standing engine was fired up .
