Re: Cleveland Enquiries oil pressure, compression pressure
I found my old Clevo had valve guide seals parts in sump, which wore out oil pump. All that was done though heads,valve gear cam,chain and new Mellings oil pump with bigger sump.It had over 400.000 Klrs on it...Tmk it's still going...
Compression test before o/h was 120- 140 after heads overhaull all over 160+ Lp Oil pressure never dropped too much say 35 idle hot and 55-65 around 2000 rpm. The mellings high volume held it up 50 idle and 75-80 when crusing..No point in checking bearing when oil pressure is good...
After seeing seals in sump, I checked oil pump...
Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
