    2H engine recon no oil pressure until 3 or 4 starts

    Hi Rodger, I added the picture of the two relief valves and you can see the longer one that has done the trick in not letting the engine oil past it. There was suppose to be a new relief valve added when the engine was reconditioned. But I'm not sure. But if any guy's have a problem with...

    2H engine recon no oil pressure until 3 or 4 starts

    Hay Rodger, It was the relief valve that was the problem. Which means that the hole the relief sits in is warn and I do need the larger valve so the engine oil doesn't run back into the sump.

    2H engine recon no oil pressure until 3 or 4 starts

    I am sure the edic is doing that. But with nothing on the dash knocked up yet I wouldn't know where it would be. It would have to be that as I have said no oil pressure the engine will stop. So now that we have some good weather it is getting close to putting the colour top coat on. Then I can...

    Snorket problems...

    They maybe a fashion thing but what they do is let free air into the engine and help it to run much better and cooler. The way it works now is warm air and does nothing. AND to keep the water away from the air intake. John

    You can do that for sure if you have a welder. Or you could drill out the spot welds to remove the plates then weld them where you want them to be. John

    Snorket problems...

    Cliffy, I can if you like show you a picture of what a after market air filter looks like. Some have the sitting on the guard which I would not do. Most have them where the Toyota air filter is now in the engine bay. John

    Snorket problems...

    The main trouble is where it is bolted to the guard. From what I am looking at you cannot un bolt it and turn it. the plates that come off the out side on the filter housing will not let you do that unless you cut them off and re weld them back on the housing.
