So i pulled the engine completely apart, is there a way to test this oil pump? After overheating, and oil light blinking, and smoke coming out of the valve cover i pulled it apart. Rod bearings looked fine, i will be replacing them though, i dont think they should be re-used, right? I will be replacing the oil pump with another one i have from my other engine.
Buttt. Heres the deal.
I measured the ring end gap and the 1st was .026, 2nd was .025
Are these numbers okay? I want as little blow by as possible. And that seems a little large for my tastes. I have aeb pistons, stock bore. Also, my compression, last time i tested was a little weak sauce, i believe it was just over 100 psi per cylinder.
