ok i know this is stupid but i have a 454 fron a 82 to 84 suberben in my truck and i was just wondering if 3 galons of oil sounds right for it?
its been completley rebilt cam pistons bored intake exost but i dident bild it so i dont know if the oil pan is stock, its a steal pan and it has a after market dipstick that was marked for whare the oil should be
it just seems like a lot of oil to me, iv been running it for about 2 years like that and it has seemed fine, has a rear main leak but no big deal
the other thing is it was swaped in to a 84 chevey desel and at hot low idel the oil presher is arownd 40 psi it idels low arownd 500 to 700 rpm cus of the cam and high compreshon pistons then when driving it gos up to about 80 psi, is this normel? could it be a difrent oil presher sensor or gage giving me wrong readings from the desel truck or thay may have put a high flow oil punp in?
eney help would be gratley apresheated
