I have a aftermarket hi-flow fuel pump on a 396 that has 60psi oil pressure at start-up.(sometimes even more, depending on the outside temp.) The fuel pump is a unit that can be easily taken apart and rebuilt or the inlet and outlets can be turned to a more convenient rotation. Anyway, I found oil dripping from the pump, but can't seem to see where it is coming from, is it possible that oil could come from the gasgets that are between the pump halves? I tightened the allen screws that hold the pump together and they were slightly loose, the 396 rumbles pretty good, anyone have a simmilar experience?
