Ford FE 427 Low oil pressure
I am new to this forum and hoping you can help me with a low oiling problem. Here is the motor with the specs.
Ford FE 427 C5AEH 65-66 side oiler solid lifter motor
Crank C9AE 6303 Nascar Steel crank with wider journals 1.835
Rods C70AE Nascar rods
Question 1. Does anyone know where I could get the bearings for this?
Clearances 2.2 - 2.6 Rods
1.8 - 2.2 Mains ( I might have this information reversed
This motor has low pressure with power drill on pump with a max of 28 psi. I have read post which states to look inside distributor to see if the plug has been forgotten and I do not see it. I have attached a picture so you can see the front of the block.
Is there away to look from the bottom to see if the bypass was installed with the pan off.
The oil pump was inspected and it looks great. No signs of debri in the pump. I also checked the plunger inside the pump and it is free and has tension on it.
Is there a difference between solid lifter block and hydraulic block.
Any recommendations as to why the oil pressure is low?
Please help with any suggestions.
