Another rebuild after 37,000 since the first 

Well, here we go again ! Back in May I wen't out to a cruise and my oil pressure gauge warning light came on. This has been intermittant for several years but not to the point it was now, Bright red. Immediately took the car home and put a manual oil pressure meter on the engine to find out I only had 6-7 pounds of oil pressure at the top end after the engine was warmed up and in idle. so to a new engine shop it goes. The engine was rebuilt back in 2007 Bored 0.30 over and 1970 0,30 deep dish pistons and hardened seat installed. Stating this for update further in the post.

Total Cost: $2,800
