  • Oil pressure
  • Trying to obtain oil pressure in my 8n and I am looking for advice. I have inserted oil in both plug on the front near the distributed as well as the oil pressure gauge tube. Filter us full. I have installed new pump and gears to include the entire pump housing. Got no pressure. I have removed the plug at the front and started the engine. Oil squirts everywhere out of the hole. Where is the problem. I have run this engine with gage off to bleed air in the line but no luck. This engine has been completely rebuilt. What did I miss.

    Thanks
    Rick

  • Try pumping oil into the junction block directly. Then reconnect the line.

  • Took a picture of the rear plug location for you. This one is also MIA.

  • Bummer but at least you have identified the problem. The other plug is at the back end of that same pipe.

  • I will check the galley plugs. All lines are new as well as gages. I think the machine shop must have pulled the and did not re-install or did not return to me for install. I think I only have the one in the front near the cam. The serial engine for this unit is just below 40k(if I remember correctly).

  • Oil pressure
  • Some comes out of the oil pressure line. Makes gage quiver

  • Pressure relief valve spring and poppet installed behind plug on front of engine?

    Internal plugs at ends of main oil galley in the block in place?
