Re: 454 oil presure?
[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] That's too much pressure and very un-Chevylike. The best Chevy V8 I ever had was about 50 psi at full rpm. Thats enough to do the job, and not enough to "shear" the oil or gouge the crank. If I were you, I would seriously consider first checking to make sure the gauge is correct, and second, work on the by-pass to get better pressure regulation. You can run the tall Napa truck filter in that engine which holds a qt extra, and the NAPA GOLD is the best filter made.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
