  11. Oil pressure is controlled by the spring loaded pressure valve this valve will open when the pressure reaches a pre set pressure. Normally what ever the dash gauge shows as the highest reading. Should the gauge read. 0 - 30 - 60 valve will open at 60# +or - now engine warm road speed over 30 MPH oil pressure 30# + or - . At idle 500 to 600 RPM oil pressure would be in the range of 5 to 6 psi. The rule of thumb is you need 10 PSI for every 1000 RPM Mike

  13. Please heal me. All these years I was informed the unit on the front of the crankshaft was called a harmonic damper to help with torsional forces of the crankshaft and was not to balance . Many of the external balance was done on the flywheel / flex plate.. The 4 cylinder used a crankshaft that had the the throws in a flat plane each throw had a throw 180 " from the other using the other throw as a counterbalance . Please help me understand.
