I finally fixed my motor. It was fine internally. All of the seals and springs were fine. The only problem was 3 cracks in the rear housing in the dowel pin area. So I just got a new housing and ported it to match mine, with T&R's help. I also modified the oil pressure regulator to give me higher pressure. I should have it running on Tuesday.

i've always wonder about bumping up the oil presssure, but wouldn't that be harder on the oil seals? I was looking at a part that raised it, how did u do it?

You could always buy the 80-85 PSI regulator from Racing Beat. To install it you just remove the oil pan, remove the old one, and install the new one.

Thumbs up

i coudl setup a support ticket system, then you could post your problem, open a support ticket and refer to the support ticket number, we could all check to see what was open, what changes have been made, etc, etc... LOL
