This is the bottom plate of the oil pump, there is some vey lite wear from the gears that lay right on the plate. Are the gears supposed to lay right on the plate? The plate is brass although the picture doesn't show it.
I was using 10w-30w Pennzoil. Don't know the RPMs but much more than needed and the pressure would barely rise when hot. I was wondering if there was anything I could do before I put this oil pan back on?
My 1926 Buick Standard has 25# oil pressure cold that drops to 0 when hot. I have the oil pan off and the pump apart but I see nothing wrong. Could any one tell me what I could possibly do to help this problem???
