Yes but it did get fairly good oil pressure when I built the engine but maybe it was loosing some of the pressure while driving. But I believe the oil pressure light has never come on while running, so who knows

Most oil lights only come on at 5psi I believe, so it could have dropped fair bit I suppose.

Well finally picked up my engine off Matt this afternoon after my 10 day holiday.
Thanks Matt for all your Help

Thought well I can’t leave it in the back of the motor, so attached it to the hoist
Did think if I could do a Miley Cyrus wrecking ball and swing the engine straight in the engine bay :lol:, but in the end went for the sliding down the plank of wood, ok chip board which snapped, which I new was going to happen, but as the hoist was taken the strain, I didn’t bother looking for anything better.

But of course can’t just leave it there.
So up the engine goes again
