I wish to thank all that responded to my previous dilemma on no oil pressure. I took the route of the oil gauge line suggested by "Den N Ms Tractor Guru" it worked like a charm. My biggest problem was siphoning 2qts of oil thru the oil stick hole, a vacuum pump got it going, and only took 5hrs.
It started up and went to 45 lbs, as it warmed up it slowly settled down to 22-25 lbs and is holding there, at idle when hot. drops to 18 lbs
Thanks again to all 🤠😊
