Re: excessive oil pressure on fresh engine rebuild

I finally got around to installing a mechanical gauge. After driving and putting 30 miles on it I installed the mechanical gauge in place of the sending unit for the electric gauge. At 1200 rpm idle 20-25 psi, any rpm above 3k 75psig. So I am going to assume my electrical gauge reads high. I have ne...

Re: excessive oil pressure on fresh engine rebuild

I finnaly figured out how to use the new site. I pulled the engine and oil pump. The relief valve piston was stuck and needed 80 psi air with the spring removed to unseat the piston. There was debris in the bore and the piston was rusty. I cleaned the bore and polished the piston so it would move fr...

Re: excessive oil pressure on fresh engine rebuild

Engine is out and pump is off. I removed the relief valve spring and it took 80 pounds of air to unseat the piston. I inspected the piston and reinstalled it in its bore and it would hang up sliding in the bore. I reinstalled the spring and tested it with air.. It took 100 pounds of air and several ...

Re: excessive oil pressure on fresh engine rebuild

Before I fired the engine I cranked the engine with out plugs. If I remember correctly it was 60 pounds using the starter. I'm in the process of pulling the engine to access the pump and check the relief valve piston. Thanks for your feed back, I'll let you know what I find. FYI This engine is in a ...

Re: excessive oil pressure on fresh engine rebuild

I have an after market electric gauge. The gauge builds pressure over a few seconds after the engine is started and bleeds off when the engine is stopped. I was using this gauge before I rebuilt the engine and it acted normal. Years ago I had a similar event with the oil filter gasket blowing out. T...

Re: excessive oil pressure on fresh engine rebuild

Yes, I ran the engine with one of the cam covers off, it appears I am getting oil but I have never done this before so I dont know if the volume is correct.

excessive oil pressure on fresh engine rebuild

I just rebuilt my 4age, new pistons, cams and oil pump. Upon start up the oil pressure gauge pegged at 100psig and the oil filter gasket blew out dumping 3 quarts of oil in 20 seconds of runtime. I installed another oil filter and watched it swell and stretch as I increased rpm to 1500 and the gauge...

lifter notch and shim replacement tool

I have a head that has only 1 notch in each lifter, is this common? All my other heads have 2 notches 180 deg apart. I assume the notches are for shim removal. Would there be any negative affect on adding the second notch? Does anyone know of a source to buy the lifter compressor/shim removal tool? ...
