Ok, still skeptical on how this would cause 0 oil pressure but I'm pretty desperate at this point and willing to try anything.  The guage doesnt even budge.  That has to be one massive leak then.


When you take something apart, then put it back together, and it does not work properly, your safest starting point to fix this latest issue it is to go back to what you just worked on.

Good idea but someone just put a deposit on it...I give up.  Thanks for trying 

My old man came by and helped me out.  We took apart the oil pump and the releif valve for the 3rd time...packed it with engine assembly grease, gave two quick start & shut off, and on the 3rd shot we got over 5 bar on the mechanical guage!  ?


deposit returned, lol


My guess is something to do with that releif valve.  Just glad it finally has oil pressure.  Thanks for the suggestions JFP

I wonder if it’s possible it’s the oil itself. Sat for a long time and became thinner and that prevented priming. Once engine started and running, whatever contaminants were burned off. Just a thought. Hard to imagine it’s the pressure relief valve that looks fine.
