Re: 302 not oiling
Thats bull $$$$ , there aint no plunger in the block [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
The by-pass is in the oil-pump, did you fill the oil pump with some heavy pre-lube prior to installing it? Also you need to prime it with a primer shaft but remember, the Ford turns CCW so you need a reversable drill...
Keep in mind, those tiny oil gallery plugs(behind the cam sprocket) love to fly out after they have been heated in a cleaning oven, one could of popped out if they werent replaced and staked in.
