Ok, I was finally able to get around to rebuilding my Ď66 5000 SOS. New crankshaft and everything. New oil pump. After I got it all together, it started fine. After checking for leaks and seeing none, I ran it for a few hours to get her warmed up good. Next day I ran it again for a few hours doing some loader work. Over the next couple days, I used it a few times but not for more than 30 at a time. This morning I started it up and after a couple minutes I saw smoke coming out oil filler cap. Immediately shut it down. Waited a half the day, restarted and moved back into barn and smoke again. I attached an aftermarket oil pressure gauge before moving back to barn and it never budged the gauge.

What could have happened? Like I said, it ran for hours no problem over a few days, and all the sudden no oil pressure. When I took the plug out from the block for the pressure gauge, it did not look like oil even got to it.

I rebuilt my 2000 gasser 18 months ago i put a aftermarket gauge on it when we assembled it and its still there. I dont trust idiot lights.. I keep looking at the steering cowl and wondering about putting a oil and temp gauge there..

Did you have a gauge on the engine before the issue?

. I would pull the oil pump apart and see what might have caused it to lock up Years ago I pulled an oil pan off to change the pan gasket I used a wire wheel on a die grinder to clean the gasket off the block A week later the car came back on a hook it would not start the Distributer gear had sheared the pin that held it in place this also ran the oil pump I found the oil pump was locked up dropped the pan took the oil pump apart it had a wire from my wire wheel in it I never did that again

That's not good.

Better pull some bearing caps and check the crank and bearings.

I don't think I've ever seen that or heard of it. Some failure analysis is in order here.

I havenít got around to dropping the pan yet to be able to look. For the life of me I canít figure out why it would have broken. Like I said, it was a new pump from here.

I did not have a pressure gauge on it when I started it up after the rebuild, just the idiot light of panel.

Will do Bern.

Would you expect the bearings to be shot? I did filter the oil and did not see any metal flakes.

If smoke was coming out of the filler cap, that cannot be a good thing.

My best guess would be that either #12 or 13 is stripped out. I'd remove #13 and see if the hex is stripped out.

Today's Featured Article - Box Plow Blues - by Tom Schwarz. One of the first implements most tractor owners obtain is the box plow. For very little money, this piece of equipment promises to plow and flatten any hill or vale on your ranch road or farm. At least that's what I thought! As simple as a box plow appears, it can be rather challenging to make work correctly. In our sandy soils of Florida, traction is king. You can never have wide enough tires or heavy enough weights to get all the traction you want Ö unless you own a monster tractor. U ... [Read Article]
