I have built a 429 SCJ 4 Bolt DOOE-R heads, Flat tops, Comp XM 278 cam, Pro Magnums roller rockers, 3/8 Pushrods, Stainless Valves, Comp 924 springs, Stealth, Holley 750 vac sec, Milodon 10 Qt oil pan, high volume pump etc. The engine is in a Glastron CV 23 with pretty tite Berk JE, pump Loader and Place diverter.
I had it out for dial in on Sunday an run it up to speed after checking for leaks etc.
The thing ran great- 56-5800 on my crappy old 78 vintage tach, and buried the cheap 65 MPH speedo.
The big question is why would the oil pressure fluctuate between 60-80 psi at high rpm? I have read other threads where the 10 qt pan should only have 8 qts to keep the oil from whipping up and getting aerated. I have only 8, maybe 9qts in this engine now I am concerned about keeping a steady flow of oil in this engine. Any advise?
