Idle Oil Pressure Low

Discussion in 'Oil' started by rosankyharleyman, Jul 25, 2008.

    I installed the baisley spring in my cam plate and have great pressure running down the road, 55-60 psi. My idle pressure still seems low, below 10. Of course I have not checked pressure with manual guage but was wondering why low pressure at idle.

    I agree with the "O" rings, biggest problem with pinching one on reassembly.

    Would that be the O ring on the plug 0n top of the cam support plate ?

    Generally it's where the cam plate is bolted to the engine case. They get squished and loose pressure there.
