So now I've got the hydraulics straight and all the other little nit picky things cleaned up on my TO-35/Z134 I need to address my oil pressure issues. After running my 5 foot tiller for about 45mins to an hour the pressure drops to 20psi at 1/2 throttle and at idle it reads 0 on my new gauge. When cold it reads 25 at 1/2 and 20 at idle, what's confusing is the motor runs extremely well and has 150lbs compression so its like someone resleeved and ringed it but didn't do any bottom end work.
Now my question is how feasible is it to go into the motor and only replace the main bearings and rebuild the oil pump. Being I just spent about 800$ on a new top cover and other hydraulic parts a full engine rebuild just isn't in the picture right now but I really need this thing mowing in a few months. Any thoughts are appreciated both good and bad.
