    Dooley 10 quart pan rear pickup (bolt on). Melling HV pump. Motor was 466 cu in and spinning 5300 N/A (500hp) and 5600 on the juice (650hp or so).

    Pressure was 50 psi unless you stay in it for a couple miles. When you hear the big whoosh.........get the hell off the pedal.

    I've always heard that as long as you got 10 lbs. per hundred rpm, yer ok...

    That said: 460 cubes, parts store oil pump, factory car style front sump 5 qt pan, 300 HP (if I'm lucky lol), 4500 max rpm... Oil pressure 50 lbs cold idle, after warming up & running, maybe 30 lbs wot & dropping to around 18-20 at idle....

    Yeah, she needs a little attention, but been like that for 3 years & still gettin around... I ain't doin anything to it yet...

    Ya know.......I was always worried about my seeminly low oil pressure (50 psi). Dan Nelson told me not to sweat it. The motor lasted 8 full seasons before it got rebuilt and I'm still using the same crank and rods. Pistons weren't all that bad either. Had just enough bore scratch to warrant going from .030 over to a .040 over. Guess he was right.

    On top of that I only changed my oil once per season and I run my boat alot. This was not Dan's idea though. Came up with that one myself. I think he'd have had me to change a little more often than that.

    So whatcha got going Pumper? New pan? It'd be cool if you could let the other true blue guys know.

    dooley/melling as well, spins stainless A to 5200 all day and never drops below 70. Unfortunately I do not know many details on the motor other than bought from Louis Majors and it was built in PHX.

    Not sure....trying to get some ideas. Cruising and idleing around, the pressure is ok in between 40-60 psi depending on how hot it is. After making a WOT pass it will drop to 0 if I stay in it long enough but will come right back within about 3 seconds of getting off the throttle. While making the pass you can just watch the pressure steadily drop. Everybody has a different opinion of what is causing it, crank airating the oil, oil getting stuck in the top end etc.... I'm currently running a 10QT Milodon and have tried all different levels of oil in it from 10 down to 7 quarts. Guys in the know have said they ran the same pan on a FORD and had the same problem and solved it just by switching to a better pan. Not sure but looks like that is where I will start before trying stuff like restricted pushrods and such.

    Well...I hope you get that dialed in Mike. That sounds like a huge problem, dropping down 0-psi. If you decide on any manufacture pan, you obviously know my recommendation.
