Oil pumps...

He says that, but why?
 
I've run a HP/HV on several motors with no problems.  It moves more oil through the journals and keeps them cooler.
 
I'll check the down sides in 100K or 2 when I tear down Polaraco.

I've heard it from others,  not just the stitcher man.  I'm just going with the consensus...

The only problem I am aware of with an HV pump in a big block id oil starvation.  Sometimes too much oil stays up in the top and the sump is too low for the pickup.  The solution is run it a quart over to be sure.
 
I run Polaraco a quart over. . . .
 
If there was an issue with HV/HP pumps, they wouldn't be so easy to get

You're not listening.
I said HP may be too much for street engines.  Not HV.
 
As far as "wouldn't be so easy to get...",
day-go spark plug wires are easy to get, too.  Would you run those?
