Re: EF XR6 Oil Pressure Probs
Fix the sump in any case as the oil pick up maybe very close to sump and not allowing oil through quick enough..Check that pick up isn't bent also...
The rattling and uneven idle is why you should fix sump asap ..There is no oil getting to your lifters..Remember they are self adjusting and it's the oil that fills any lash..It sounds like it hasn't been serviced correctly and now its running sh!t, you want to worry about it now ?? !!! It may be cheaper to buy another engine and drop it in there...
The timing chain is tentioned by oil pressure as well...
Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
