After reading through the archives, I have a couple of questions. My car still has the idiot light for oil pressure. Does anyone know what the "below pressure" amount is for this light? I am adding a gauge asap.
The problem is after I replaced all the seals this past weekend(rear main, oil pan, front seal, valve cover), now after the car warms up, the oil light comes on at idle. Rev the engine, goes off. Drive it, goes off. Idle - on. The engine does not sound oil starved, but I'm worried. The car never did this before until I replaced these seals. I was very careful about keeping everything clean and everything torqued to spec. I've done this procedure w/ several engines, but this is the first time I've had this problem. The engine has 9,000 miles on it (new oil pump at that time), I'm running 10W30 standard (no Syn), its a 1970 350, mild cam, HEI.
Any ideas on what I screwed up here? I hope to have the gauge installed by this weekend for better info but looking for a headstart where to look.
THANKS in advance!!
