Disaster Strikes

3 years and a lot of Benjamins, and I finally get it back on the road. Out for a shakedown, after a series of dyno runs, and some short trips at lower speeds, when the oil pressure goes to zero, and I'm on the side of I-40.

Made the mistake of buying an engine from a backyard builder. Never again. Sending my original long block off to have it done, and chalking this up to lessons learned.

i'd dig into the block a bit. especially the timing cover. these have retarded oil system on them,and you may have a pump relief valve in backwards or something. or a galley plug fell out in the timing cover or under the intake.

real gauge or the electric oil p gauge?

Electric, but it was reading on the low side (not critical) after warm-ups, not enough to provoke panic. And the soundtrack definitely jived with the reading on the gauge.

pull the intake first. you may have a galley plug laying in the valley. there is also to behind the cam timing sprocket. there is 2 on the rear of the block but those would pump oil onto the ground.
