    Oil pressure low to 0 at idle when engine is hot

    The gear kits for the 320 I've been seeing are onIy $60 or so, but I doubt putting new gears in a worn housing will fix anything. Thanks! I'll try to contact him.

    Mine is definitely steel, but the problem is the pump housing is worn on the driven gear side about as much as the plate is, so I think I need to replace the entire thing. I'm not even sure how it got that bad.

    They have been worn about .060" deep, I don't think I can sand it out. The gear teeth look fine, but I'm not sure how much wear they have on the ends after seeing the housing.

    Oil pressure low to 0 at idle when engine is hot

    Sorry it took a while to respond, I've been really busy. We dropped the oil pan last week and found the oil pump housing and cover plate have excessive wear. I believe this is the cause of my issues. Does anyone know where I can get a new oil pump?

    Oil pressure low to 0 at idle when engine is hot

    10W30 and almost a month. I also added some motor honey to the oil as well. I'm dropping the pan to-morrow to check the bearings & pump.
  6. As the title says, the oil pressure in my 39 Century goes down to 0 (or almost 0 hard to tell) at idle when the engine is fully warmed up. Oil level is fine. Could this be an issue with the oil pump or a gasket in the oil pickup line?

    Music in a Pre-War Car??

    Not really prewar, but I used to strap a portable cassette tape player in my Jeep's passenger seat. Worked decent and was a rugged enough machine to handle off-roading.

    where to buy 320 intake manifold check valve

    It does have the tube, but it's hard to attach it to the car without the elbow also being attached

    where to buy 320 intake manifold check valve

    I assumed the 320's were mostly the same. But it's a 39. Here is the valve And it attaches where that little brass plug is It's some sort of drain for gasoline or other liquids in the intake manifold. I assume it drains anything in there whenever the engine is shut down. I've just rebuilt the carb and replaced that valve with the brass plug seen in the second picture.
  10. I've found that I have a few induction leaks, I think the elbow shaped check valve right under the carb is part of the problem (sorry I don't know the correct term for it). Does anyone know where I can find a new or NOS one of these? Or is there a replacement part that works just as well?

    Hi-Flow vs Normal Thermostat?

    Poor compression. It also misfires a lot at idle. There was a lot of sludge in the engine when I purchased the car, I think it was helping plug up some of the gaps. When I flushed the oil system I think I removed a lot of it leading to the engine running crummy. It still drives ok, but I would rather not drive it excessively if there is a lot of wear and risk damaging it more severely.

    Hi-Flow vs Normal Thermostat?

    Yes, it seems to have calmed down a bit, although I don't know if the problem is completely gone yet. I am considering rebuilding the engine now anyways though, I really didn't want to, but due to it running poorly I think that it may be my only choice.

    Roughly 60-70% water.
