Low oil pressure
« Reply #15 on: May 03, 2010, 07:29:12 AM »

I go back to what I said about adding an extra quart.  Since you have a high volume pump in there now, even more the reason.  The oil light will pop on when you make turns, go up steep hills and make abrupt stops.
 
Are you talking about the hex inside the pump being worn?  If so, you better get another distributor gear shaft.  Chances are the shaft spun in the pump.  That's not good.  It's just a matter of time.
 
The gear will be pretty easy to change.  Just put the new one in the same way the old onw cae out and retime

I am talking about the outside of the shaft that sits on the hex shaft. The hex shaft itself was fine. The gears in the pump would not turn freely because of this.
