Re: Re: CA oil pressure in reply to Phil Auten (TX), 07-06-2000 09:01:20
As Phil says, if 18psi is fully warmed up I wouldn't give it a second thought. A-C engines never had a lot of oil pressure when new anyway. Still, if you want to look inside anyway, all of the bearings use shims, except for the cam, making it easy to set bearing clearance. If the copper backing is showing through the bearings, they're too worn to adjust. Clearance can be checked with plastigauge. The manual says .001to .002 for clearance. If its .002 or more try removing part of the shim pack. There are 4 leaves in each pack originally. According to the manual, A-C approves the removal of up to 2 shims in each pack, but its best to replace the bearings instead. Hope this helps, Brian.
