:hangloose hey peeps,

this might be a long thread so bare with me. i have just stripped my engine (H case 1969) down for a rebuild as it was begining too run hot and the oil pressure light was coming on at idle after 10 mins driving.

at present i've folowed the tom wilson book and i'm down to a split case with bare crankshaft and camshaft.

All measurements seem ok * main bearig bores
* camshaft bores
* oil pump bore
* cam lifter bore
* con rod tightness

There seems to be no significantly bad wearing on any of the surfaces.

Problems at the mo i think include . top right no. 3 cylinder head
stud is loose.
. only had one camshaft bearing
with lip. the opposite one was
just normal. IS THIS RIGHT?



. cam lifters have worn concave
but have no major grooves

Am just wondering if by replacing all bearings, sorting end play out, replacing cam lifters and installing case savers this wil solve the oil pressure problems???????

:( :hangloose

it may well do, but a new oil pump and relief valve and spring or 2 depending on the engine as 69 twin relief valves started would be a good investment as the originals are 36 years old and probably worn.
