Trying to find the reason oil pressure dropped when punching the throttle from 3000-5200 rpm. This just started happening towards the end of the season...no knocks/taps etc engine ran great. And no, oil level was not over full and mechcnical gauge was replaced for the test.
After pulling the Milidon 10/qt pan and the HV oil pump I had hoped to see maybe a cracked/dropped oil pickup or stuck trap-doors or even the violet oil pump spring cracked or bypass plunger stuck...nope smooth as silk.
Next, main and rod caps.
